The Train Robbers (1970)

Burt Kennedy directs John Wayne, Ann-Margret and Ben Johnson in this western where a group of hired guns try to reach a derailed train full of stolen gold before a posse catches them.

A fun little western. 70% of it is just horses riding through landscapes but the shoot-outs are enthralling, the attitude elegiac without being dour and Ann-Margret and The Duke have a nice platonic bond. Sturdy.
