At the beginning, when they are leaving the Telegraph office after Quirt sends his telegram, the office door is alternately closed, open, closed when the telegraph operator is acting like he knows Quirt as he rides away in the wagon. See more »


Doc Johnson: The practice of medicine is one of the most infuriating professions that have been known to man. It takes 30 years of practice to discover that, in the final analysis, there's nothing you can do but stand back and watch.

I'm a John Wayne fan, BUT this movie was great !
21 March 2018 | by dsenseiu-14411See all my reviews

Having seen both movies I would take this movie as the better one. True, John Wayne is a great actor as I am a fan,but the difference between the two movies is taking out "the Horseshit and Gun-smoke". This movie have more feelings in it. The moral of the story is what it was all about. There were many changes in this movie that made it different than the original..Lou Diamond Phillips did a great job and Deborah Kara Unger did a better job as "Temperance". T I don not agree with the critics given this movie anything below 6 stars, as a matter of fact I would give it a 9 or maybe even a 10. It was a movie that is rarely seen nowadays without all the sex,profanity. The rating is PG-13. If thay had the rating in 1947 it would have been rated "R".
