Finally on dvd and with a very nice special edition, the 1953 John Wayne western "Hondo" reaches a whole new audience who wasn't even aware of the existence of this wonderful film that due to copyrigth distupes had been unavailable for more than 40 years.
Originally shot in 3D "Hondo" was directed by Wayne friend director Jonh Farrow with whom we would work the following year in The Sea Chase.
The story revolves around a cowboy who meets a widow and his son living in indian territory. Hondo and his dog wll givethe protection and eventually they become a family.
The suporting cast includes Ward Bond and Geraldin Page who got an oscar nomination.
The film is presented in is 4:3 original aspect ratio and offers nice special features.A true western classic!
