An entertaining movie showing John Wayne in a rather different role than we are used to seeing him portray. I showed it to an ardent anti John Wayne person and she actually admitted that she enjoyed the movie and had been converted!

40s romantic adventure yarn set in the Andes 3 Feb 2014
By Annie Van Auken - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Product Data is incomplete on this DVD of TYCOON.
It's a Region 2 disc and will not work in standard American players.

.
TYCOON (1947) is an RKO release that features John Wayne as a construction engineer named Johnny Monroe. His job: tunnel through an Andean mountain. The task is complicated by Frederick Alexander (Cedric Hardwicke), the project's millionaire bankroller. His insistence on corner-cutting (a refusal to line the tunnel with concrete to prevent collapses), and Johnny's romantic pursuit of his daughter Maura (Laraine Day), is also problematic. She has a penchant for following the curious local courting customs, while her father wants Johnny to steer clear of his girl entirely.

After she's sent to the country, Maura defies the old man and makes her way toward town. Meanwhile, Johnny heads out in his jeep on the same road. They meet halfway; Johnny gives Maura a ride to Tenango, but he runs out of gas near some Incan ruins. That night as they huddle by a fire, Mr. Alexander and a search team locate them. To settle matters, Johnny and Maura get married-- and that event marks the beginning of their problems.

John Wayne's next picture after this was the John Ford classic, ASIN:B000O599NA FORT APACHE]] (1948).

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.
