“John Wayne and Montgomery Clift star in Howard Hawks’s epic 1948 western—one of the few such projects in which the human element takes its rightful precedence over spectacle. The plot concerns a rancher and his adoptive son, who come into conflict over the leadership of a cattle drive. But the film is only superficially a study in the ethics of command; its real subject lies in the deeper bonds of friendship and mutual respect. With Joanne Dru, Walter Brennan, and John Ireland.” – Dave Kehr
