John Ford directs John Wayne, Victor McLaglen and Joanna Dru in this Western where a retiring Cavalry captain takes his troop out on one last patrol.
Manifest Destiny: The Sitcom Years. Dated politics and racism aside, this is a beautiful ensemble piece. The location work is stunning, Duke delivers his most uncharacteristically human turn of acting and the always wonderful McLaglen gets a comedy bar fight sequence just for the sake of things. Duty and peril take over romantic triangles and scenery but the light witty air never abandons the production. A fine film.
