Made in 1973 "Cahill, US Marshal" is one of the last films in John Wayne's career. He was going to make only four films after this one: two crime movies, "McQ" in 1974 and "Brannigan" in 1975, before going back to westerns and turning "Rooster Cogburn... and the Lady" (a quite honest sequel to the legendary "True Grit") in 1975 and his great finale and last hurrah, "The shootist" in 1976.
J.D. Cahill is the toughest US Marshal in history (OK, maybe after Rooster Cogburn). Once he catches a trail and smells blood, there is no escape - he always brings in his man, either vertically or horizontally positioned... And he certainly produces many memorable one liners, like the one in the title of this review...)))
But his job didn't allow him much time to take care of his sons, Danny and Billy Joe, even after his wife died. The boys miss him greatly and terribly resent his absences - and therefore they will be an easy prey for a bad man willing to use them for his own sinister purposes. Nothing more will be said about the story.
It pains me to say that, but this is not a very good film. Oh for sure it is a honest watch, with some humour, many very "macho" moments, some good shootouts and a nice soundtrack - but a masterpiece it isn't. In fact, in many moments it seems like this film was somehow made more for young adults and/or teenagers rather than for grown ups. The best secondary character, a half-breed Comanche called Lightfoot (Neville Brand) is not really optimally used, the "bad guy" character and his henchmen are ultimately not very well conceived and the ending is not as good as should be.
Therefore I recommend this film mostly for Duke's true blue fans, like me - for our kind this is still a very watchable thing. Other viewers may be disappointed.
Wayne is J.D. Cahill, a tough U.S. marshal who is always on the trail of someone and never at home, which is why his sons Danny (Gary Grimes) and Billy Joe (Clay O'Brien) decide to teach the old man a lesson they go off with Abe Fraser (George Kennedy) and his gang to rob a bank. Actually they have a fairly complicated plan which involves being locked up in jail during the robbery so they have an alibi. Fraser promises no one will get hurt, but of course the sheriff and deputy are gunned down. The younger Cahill hides the loot and if either brother talks, Fraser will kill them both. With the sheriff dead, daddy shows up to track down the bank robbers and takes Danny along with him. They even capture a group of outlaws, who are sentenced to hang for the murders and the robbery.
The pivotal character in the film is actual Danny Cahill, who has to get the hidden loot to Fraser, avoid having four innocent men hung, and try and pray that his father never gets everything to add up. Of course he does, although how the dots get connected is not exactly clear.Read more ›
Basically his two childer feel they are being neglected by their U.S. Marshal dad (Wayne) and as a result help George Kennedy and his goons rob a bank.
So Wayne, his wig and his Indian sidekick get put on the case.
Needless to say Wayne's wig figures it out in two minutes greased flat...
The entire cast show up presumably suffering from haemorrhoids. With Wayne's two onscreen brats proving to be as sickly sweet as sticky toffee horses***!
Having seemingly stolen a script from 'Little House on the Prarie', they say unlikely, mid-western phrases like "Gee Pa" and "Aw shucks"; Wayne going through his standard motions of sashaying up and down whilst waxing lyrical about those calling a tune having to pay a piper.
The most outstanding thing about this Motion Picture Production are Neville Brand's teeth, which I suspect he stole off one of The Osmonds.
When you look at some of Wayne's output... For Example:
She Wore a Yellow Ribbon
The Sons Of Katie Elder
The Horse Soldiers
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
etc, this doesn't hold a candle to them. In fact it's just The Duke on autopilot. Hell, even The Duke's syrup is on autopilot!!
A formulaic wig-fest recommended only to those with zero expectations and an inordinately long life-span.
