"I've Got a Saddle Older than You, Mrs Lowe! A WAYNISM fro TRAIN ROBBERS
on 28 October 2017
This review is for the DVD from The JOHN WAYNE Collection from Warner. The DVD is excellent. A good letterbox transfer (bars top and bottom - giving an extra appreciation of William Clothier's terrific photography). Gorgeous colour and clear picture and sound, with optional English subtitles. Extras include trailers and 2 featurettes. I can't help but feel this film comes in for some unfair criticism. I would be the first to admit it's not Wayne's finest hour, but it is fun! Wayne works well with Ben Johnson (plenty of closeups of Ben's weatherbeaten physog), and he seemed to me to connect with Ann Margaret, who of course retains her spectacular good looks and hair throughout the desert trek, but why cast her and make her dowdy and dirty?? Rod Taylor tries for his macho "Chuka" character and it comes off OK. Somewhat wasted is Christopher George, and more so Bobby Vinton (what on earth was he doing here?), And if you want to give a stuntman a bit extra, do better than director Burt Kennedy does with Jerry Gatlin.. Yes there is a lot of riding back and forth, but it all looks lovely and there is action, courtesy Cliff Lyons (so lots of horses fall when their riders are shot) and at 93 mins it didn't drag for me at all.
