Format: DVD
Made in 1962 (an age similarly experiencing major social change), this 118min B&W classic is one of John Ford's deepest, most thoughtfull films. Set amidst the years that saw civilisation as we understand it today replacing America's earlier 'Heroic' age, the story centres around the strained relationship between the "toughest man south of the Picket Wire" Liberty Valance(Lee Marvin), rock hard rancher Tom Donovan(John Wayne) and the educated/sophisticated but physically less self-reliant eastern lawyer Ranson Stoddart(James Stewart). The message of the film is simple but profound; although the 'new ways' of law and order are clearly beneficial, much is also lost with the passing of the more direct methods by which the old West both enforced acceptable behaviour and selected it's community leaders. Perhaps the most poigniant message of the film is how the true reality of Liberty's death is concealed by all those involved for various reasons, and the longer-term results that concealment has for big Tom Donovan, lawyer Stoddart's political career, the frontier town of Shinbone and also America's future. As both exciting entertainment and also food for thought, I cannot recommend this film highly enough, it's an absolutely first class depiction of the old West and it's people at their best!!!

How come, that the secret of making movies which could be THAT good, seems to be lost? No matter how long you look, you will not find in the contemporary cinema a movie which would be so smart, funny and tragic in the same time as this one. Well, ladies and gentlemen, behold here one of the most legendary masterpieces of western - and three giants of American cinema: James Stewart, John Wayne and Lee Marvin.

This is a highly symbolical story about the barbary being beaten away by the civilisation, the crime being reduced by law and the chaos of wilderness being replaced by order. The symbol of barbary, crime, chaos and violence is a jubilant, agressive, vile and primitive bandit, called Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin). He is so horrible that almost strangely appealing, a force of nature which can fascinate - until we actually see his victims... He will be confronted by a young lawyer (James Stewart), who came to the Far West trying to establish a law practice, but who, in a lawless town, will end washing dishes.

Now, James Stewart was not a whimp (he actually ended the WWII as general of aviation - the only Hollywoodian actor who went as far in military) but in this movie he portrays the total opposite of Liberty Valance - he is civilised, nonviolent, polite, reserved (although well spoken), in fact he seems a little dull compared to the bandit. Until the day when he grabs that gun and (still wearing an apron!) walks to face Liberty Valance...

But the actor who is the reason for which this movie is such a masterpiece is the Duke himself - John Wayne. This is one of his most important, most complex and possibly the most tragic roles. His character represents what we have to loose when the heroic and barbaric times end.

Firstly the film, which is really good and not at all what you expect from a Western. Light on action but heavy on the dialogue it's a very entertaining watch with Jimmy Stewart outshining the Duke.

This Blu-Ray transfer is superb with really good shadows and no grain at all. For a 50 year old film this looks great. Sound is HD which really brings out the dialogue very cleanly and crisp.

There are no extras which is dissapointing, however there is a restored mono soundtrack for the purists out there.

All in all well worth getting even with the lack of extras and unlike many black and white films on Blu-Ray, this is a definite upgrade to any previous versions.

In 1962 John Ford gave us his last great film.
"The Man who shot Liberty Valance " is a truly classic picture. With the exception of "El Dorado" this is the last great classic Hollywood Western(although "Nevada Smith", "The Four Sons of Katie Elder" and "The War Wagon" were decent efforts. Starring John Wayne and James Stewart this film is an interesting study of the painful enforcement of law in the west, and the role of the myth in it's construction.
This picture is not only a classic film but a real treasure in movie history, not only for it's aesthetic beauty but also for the strong sense of nostalgia for the West and the Western genre itself that comes across in director John Ford's beautiful images of is imaginary heroic past that comes to life in the strong performances of John Wayne, Vera Miles, James Stewart, Lee Marvin and all the other suporting actors of Ford's stock company. The DVD edition is a let down for such an important film. Even if the picture quality is ok, the mono sound could have been remasterd to stereo and a making of documentary is obligatory.
Let's hope that a Special Edition would do this classic film justice.

This is, as other reviewers have stated, one of the greatest westerns ever. It can make this claim not through any blistering action sequences, but through its tension, its thoughtfulness and an awarness of time and place which is unmatched in the genre.

An example is the scene when the delegates crowd into the hall for the statehood vote - a nicely observed piece -while ignoring the black man sitting at the foot of the steps. A wonderful counterbalance to the talk of freedom inside the hall.

It is also, as I say extremely tense, and the scenes between Wayne and Marvin are as taut as anything either has appeared in elsewhere

Wonderful film
