Format: DVD
Three civil war veterans team up with a train robber's widow to recover a cool half-million in hidden gold. The widow (Ann Margaret) knows where the gold is burried. It turns out that it is in the belly of the train engine burried now in the sand. Three friends (John Wayne, Rod Taylor and Ben Johnson) agree to take her and collect $50,000 reward. They take Christopher George, Bobby Vinton and Jerry Galtin as helpers.
But the dead man's ex-partners also want this gold and will kill to get it. The caravan heads towards the dunes and the gang of robbers follow them. After arriving at the disabled train, the gold is taken out, but the gang surround them watched by Ricardo Montalban. After a shoot out, the gang retreat back to town and the caravan follows them.
Michael Wayne produces and Burt Kennedy directs this interesting beautifully photographed western in super-widescreen. The back ground music by Dominic Frontiere is also nice.The talk between John Wayne, Rod taylor and Ben Johnson is also funny at times. Will the caravan survive? Will the gang get their gold?
Watch and ENJOY. (ENGLAND. UK)

Format: DVD
Despite its low reputation, Burt Kennedy's The Train Robbers has quite a bit going for it even if the end result is a pretty average oater best seen in a double-bill with a better film. John Wayne and old friends Rod Taylor and Ben Johnson (who, true to the formula in later Wayne pictures, handles all the dialogue filling in the Duke's backstory to make sure the audience knows what a great guy he is behind the bluster) team up to help widow Ann-Margret find the quarter of a million in gold her late husband stole so she can turn it in for the reward with a clear conscience. Naturally hubby's former partners in crime and a few more anonymous bad `uns they've recruited in the intervening years have plans of their own and are in hot pursuit.

For the two-thirds the plot can roughly be summed up as: Wayne and company ride at a leisurely pace while a band of band men gallop after them without catching up for the best part of an hour of screentime while Ricardo Montalban's silent stranger watches from a distance while smoking a cigar. Thankfully there's some good dialogue along the way that has fun playing with Wayne's many catchphrases while acknowledging the Duke is too old to play the romantic lead ("I've got a saddle older than you, Mrs Lowe"). Along the way we learn that Rod Taylor can't master an American accent, Ann Margret can't play drunk, Dominic Frontiere's busy score can't really get a grip on the film and can surmise that Bobby Vinton managed to annoy someone high up on the film from the way he's literally pretty much sidelined throughout the film - because he's often placed at the extreme edge of the frame and rarely does anything, he was almost completely cut out of Warner Home Video's old fullframe video transfer.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
To say things straight, this film is not a full success - but I do not regret that I bought and watched it. Below, more of my impressions, with some SPOILERS.

Some twenty years after the War Between The States, a certain Ms. Lowe (gorgeous Ann-Margret), a young and very attractive widow, contacts Lane (John Wayne), an aging former Union cavalry officer, to help her with an unusual endeavour. Ms. Lowe reveals that her late husband was, sadly, a bandit and he once attacked a government train and stole half a million USD in gold coins! It seems that this loot was essentialy not spend but hidden, in a particularly remote and unfriendly location in northern Mexico - and Ms. Lowe knows precisely where! She wants to get this gold and return it - and she is ready to share with Lane and his men the finder fee (10%) offered by the US government. But she warns Lane, that she is not the only one to be after the gold - former associates of her husband are relentlessly following her and if finding this gold offers no difficulties, surviving to claim the reward can be a different matter altogether...

What follows is an easy, mostly relaxing, rather pleasant to watch western, not very good but not very bad either, with a big voyage, lots of camping, black coffee and beef jerky with beans meals, occasional gun fights, some campfires stories and a John Wayne who willingly concedes that both his character and himself are getting old and romancing beautiful young widows is a little behind both of them ("I have a saddle older than you Ms. Lowe"). This moment carries even more weight once we remember that exactly 20 years earlier, in another western (it was "Hondo") John Wayne's character met another young beautiful widow named Ms. Lowe - but in those times she soon ended in his bed...

Nicely reviewed above, just to add that the region 1 disc has 2 featurettes one is the original release featurette from 1973 and runs for 4mins the other is a nice 10min talk with some of the dukes stuntmen and crew members fondly recalling "working with a legend".Also a 18min trailer gallery that is on most of these "JOHN WAYNE COLLECTION" dvds.

When two of the main stars can't act, and the other two aren't bothered, the movie is in trouble. Fortunately, the story is, like the humour, feeble and very predictable - so good acting would be wasted. Rod Taylor is quite good at playing Rod Taylor, but there is a limit to the number of times you want to see him. Ann-Margaret can't even play herself, she's there for what they used to call sex-appeal, odd when she is cast as a virtuous drunk! Ben Johnson is just marking time here, and Wayne is clearly on the way out - he died a couple of years after this. Even so, without Wayne and Johnson, this would be a one star movie! It's easy to see why Westerns became a dying genre with such dross. Western diehards, like me, owe Clint Eastwood a huge debt of gratitude for reviving things nearly 20 years later with his magnificent tour-de-force 'Unforgiven'.
