3.0 out of 5 stars "John Wayne IS Cahill". 31 Dec 2009
Over the Christmas period I was delighted to wake up one morning, rather late it must be admitted, and catch a programme about the travels of the famous chef Rick Stein in Mexico. It turns out he went there some thirty years before on the strength of his passion for westerns, and cited Sam Peckinpah as a major influence. Peckinpah made a number of movies including the marvellous, "The Wild Bunch" (69), in that beautiful country. On his travels Stein visited the old western film sets in Durango and also paid a visit to John Wayne's own ranch in the area, where he made three films in the seventies. "Big Jake" (71), "The Train Robbers (73), and lastly the film that I am reviewing, "Cahill United States Marshall" (73). The ranch was much as it had been then, and an old Mexican worker recalled Wayne as a workaholic, which he most certainly was when you look at his prodigious body of work in a long and illustrious Hollywood career. Interestingly the ranch is still owned by Wayne's oldest son Michael, who incidentally produced Cahill. The family have not visited the ranch in fifteen years and it seems to lie forgotten in old Mexico, as if waiting for "The Duke" to ride back into town and revive the western, like a King Arthur sleeping until Brittania needs him again in its hour of need. Sadly a forlorn hope! But yet again I digress!

On Cahill's release in 1973 I was mortified to find when I went to watch it, that it had been relegated to support film for the Paul Newman thriller, "The MacKintosh Man". On coming out of the cinema I had to admit to myself that Cahill was only a sad shadow of the great westerns the big man had made in the past.

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
The tagline for the 1973 western "Cahill U.S. Marshal" declares: "Break the law and he's the last man you want to see. And the last you ever will." But we know that because the title character is played by John Wayne, so it really goes without saying that he is as good as it gets. But this is the Duke near the end of his career and while he made a pretty good western the year before with "The Cowboys," he was now just coasting (e.g., "The Train Robbers," "Brannigan") before he actually had some fun making a movie with Katharine Hepburn ("Rooster Cogburn") and found an excellent coda to his legendary acting career with "The Shootist."
Wayne is J.D. Cahill, a tough U.S. marshal who is always on the trail of someone and never at home, which is why his sons Danny (Gary Grimes) and Billy Joe (Clay O'Brien) decide to teach the old man a lesson they go off with Abe Fraser (George Kennedy) and his gang to rob a bank. Actually they have a fairly complicated plan which involves being locked up in jail during the robbery so they have an alibi. Fraser promises no one will get hurt, but of course the sheriff and deputy are gunned down. The younger Cahill hides the loot and if either brother talks, Fraser will kill them both. With the sheriff dead, daddy shows up to track down the bank robbers and takes Danny along with him. They even capture a group of outlaws, who are sentenced to hang for the murders and the robbery.
The pivotal character in the film is actual Danny Cahill, who has to get the hidden loot to Fraser, avoid having four innocent men hung, and try and pray that his father never gets everything to add up. Of course he does, although how the dots get connected is not exactly clear.

3.0 out of 5 stars another enjoyable "duke" western. 7 Aug 2009
John wayne made quite a few movies in the early 70s,not all are brilliant ,but a wayne fan will still enjoy this satisfactory and sentimental western tale of a father whose sons get mixed up in a bank robbery and murder,which co-stars gary grimes,neville brand and george kennedy.Extras consist of a vintage featurette "the man behind the star"(7:46),trailer and a commentary by director Andrew V.Mclaglen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very educational for my grandchildren 9 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a grandfather of two young boys of 5 and 8 I enjoy showing them John Wayne films. Cahil is one of them. They learn to know right from wrong, and things are being explained by the pictures. And the boys want to see it again and again. The greatist compliment.

Another great film by the 'Duke' filmed in Durango, New Mexico and released in 1973. A story of a single parent father with two sons that feel neglected and unwanted owing to their father’s dedication to his work. This film has a great supporting cast of well known actors. DGP

3.0 out of 5 stars Father Wayne 22 May 2004
This 1972 picture is considered one of the weakest john wayne films of the 70ths, however in this story of a US Marshal that has to give a lesson to his two teenage sons who are getting involved with the wrong side of law, Wayne portrays a loving father with a guilty conscience for not having spent enough time with his two sons while they were groing.
Directed by Andrew V. Mclaguen, this may not be the best of John Wayne's pictures, and it's not as good as the previous "The Cowboys", however it has is moments and both Wayne's sense of humor and tenderness for his sons make this picture worth seeing.
On a historical note, Wayne did have a hard time while filming this picture, due to his health problems and the fact that is mentor John Ford was dyng.
