John Wayne stars as Texas Ranger Jake Cutter whose path crosses with that of professional gambler Paul Regret (Stuart Whitman). The two become uneasy bedfellows in their quest to crush a powerful outlaw gang who are selling arms and alcohol to the local Indians. This was director Michael Curtiz's last film and also stars Lee Marvin and Ina Balin.

Being raised on Eastwood, I thought it was about time I took a look at JW's work. It's a great western, typical for its time. Beautiful cinematography and score. The cast is great -John Wayne filling the screen and one Lee Marvin standing out doing what he did best. This is cowboys and indians in glorious technicolour. If you love your westerns -get it, watch it and enjoy. Adios.

Format: Blu-ray
The Comancheros may not be a classic Western, but it's certainly one of John Wayne's most entertaining star vehicles and hides the scars of its troubled production well. Director Michael Curtiz was dying during the shoot, with the Duke standing in for him behind the camera uncredited on the days he was too ill to work, and for the most part the joins never show. It's impressively staged with the kind of lavish production values that the dying studio system could still bring to the screen, boasting the kind of old-school professionalism that pleased producers and cinemagoers alike and plays well to its stars' strengths. The Duke's straight-talking Texas Ranger who lives by his word makes a surprisingly good double-act with Stuart Whitman's cultured riverboat gambler on the run from a murder charge - and, for much of the first half of the film, Wayne - after killing a judge's son in a duel. Naturally the mismatched pair end up on the same side tracking down the Comancheros who are raiding and indiscriminately killing their way through the countryside, but thanks to some witty writing, good plotting and some especially good action sequences courtesy of Cliff Lyons there's a lot of fun to be had en route to its foregone conclusion happy ending.

While the Western was already falling from favor when it came out in 1961, it's a surprisingly forward-looking style of action picture with its mixture of action, wit (be it the Duke mispronouncing French or the villain extolling his ugliness as a sign of character) and sadism for all the family.

The Comancheros blu-ray is simply outstanding,the picture quality is truly excellent,audio too,and this digibook packaging is very classy.
I seen this western when it first came to our local Cinema,it was my first viewing of John Wayne on the big screen,1960 or 61,I cant remember,and it has always been a sentimental favourite,I have the dvd,but nothing prepared me for the quality of this blu-ray transfer.
The Comancheros Blu-ray is very,very nearly up alongside The Searchers for picture quality,and that,s high praise,it also has a couple of excellent documentary,s too,all in all The Comancheros Blu-ray is a MUST BUY for all Wayne/western fans,Highly HIGHLY Recommended.
Davy Cairns,Scotland.
ps,It is definitely region free,so will play on all UK players!!!!!

Format: DVD
After winning a duel with a prominent and connected New Orleans man, gambler Paul Regret (Stuart Whitman) has to flee on account of impending arrest for murder. But he is soon captured by Texas Ranger, Jake Cutter (John Wayne), who sets about returning him to Louisiana to be hanged. However, in spite of their obvious professional differences, the men are forced to come together to fight The Comancheros, renegade white men who smuggle guns and whiskey to the Comanche Indians.

The credentials for The Comancheros are out of the top draw. Directed by Michael Curtiz, starring John Wayne, with support from the likes of Lee Marvin, Henry Daniel, Edgar Buchanan, Ina Balin, Jack Elam & Bruce Cabot. While the score is provided by Elmer Bernstein and cinematography is courtesy of William H. Clothier. It's based on a story by Paul Wellman and although far from being a top tier Duke Wayne Oater, it's an amiable action packed movie that has an old fashioned feel to it.

This was to be Curtiz's last film as he was to pass away shortly afterwards, he was helped on the direction by Wayne who requested to be uncredited for his work, while Cliff Lyons was on hand for some of the action sequences. The acting is solid and the cast seem to be having fun, though a romantic strand between Whitman's Regret & Balin's Pilar is badly developed, but around them all is the Utah & Arizona locale which is beautifully utilised by the talented Clothier.

An entertaining Oater to pass away a Sunday afternoon with. 6/10

Format: DVD
"The Comancheros" (61) is based on the very good novel of the same name written in 1954 by Paul I Wellman. It concerns the story of Texas ranger Jake Cutter who captures a riverboat gambler, Paul Regret played by the dashing Stuart Whitman. Regret is wanted for killing a senators son in a duel. After some adventures whilst conveying him to gaol they become involved in a Ranger operation against a nest of villainous Comancheros. (Gun runners notorious for trading with hostile Indians) The plot thickens as Regret meets an old flame Pilar Graile played by Ina Balin. Pilar is the daughter of the Comanchero leader played with panache by Nehemiah Persoff. She also transpires to be their only hope of salvation when the pair are captured. We head to an explosive climax.

The film was directed by the legendary Michael Cutiz a Hungarian emigree who made the unforgettable "Casablanca"(42) and "The Adventures of Robin Hood.(39) Curtiz became ill during the making of the film and Wayne fresh from his epic directorial duties on "The Alamo" took over until completion. Curtiz sadly died soon after the film was finished.

The film is greatly enhanced by the support cast who are particularly strong in this film. Special mention must be made of Guinn 'Big boy' Williams a Western stalwart of many years. The son of a congressman his nickname was given to him by Will Rogers with whom he often worked. Williams plays a brief larger than life role as an old gun runner who is economical with the truth. It is a very funny scene stealing performance and turned out to be his last as he too died shortly afterwards. It was a fitting finale to his long career.
