One of the all time Howard Hawks classics of the western genre. Featuring John Wayne and the young newcomer, Montgomery Clift, in a story based on the forging of the Chisolm Trail from Texas to Kansas. Black and white but, with its gripping story, well worth watching.
Robert Duvall in his first portrayal of an aging cowboy. It was followed by by 'Open Range' and 'Broken Trail' in similar genres and equally excellent stories. Lonesome Dove is based on Larry McMurtry's Pullitzer Prize winning novel. An excellent story with an excellent cast. It was a TV movie but with a big budget behind it. Highly recommended!
