133 minutes · 1948

This monumental 1948 western is one of Howard Hawks's greatest films. John Wayne plays a Texas rancher who steals land from a rich Mexican owner, defends it with his gun, and tries to blaze a 1,000-mile trail to get his beef to market. His performance reportedly inspired John Ford to exclaim, “I didn't know that big sonovabitch could act.” A young Montgomery Clift brings notable intensity to the role of Wayne's surrogate son.
