Wanted : Jane Turner (1936)

There isn’t a year go by I don’t sit in on some sixty odd minute black and white “B” flick meant for the bottom half of a double bill that […]

War of the Wildcats (1943)

aka In Old Oklahoma From a marketing perspective it’s awfully easy to see why this has become better known as War of the Wildcats. I mean seriously, if I’m to […]

Virginia Mayo Goes West Part 1

I’ll be the first to admit I knew who Virginia Mayo was long before I figured out who Bette Davis and Joan Crawford were. And why not. When your a […]

Dakota (1945)

Officially I guess we’d call this a western but it’s not exactly the type we most often associate with John Wayne. If you’re at all familiar with some of his […]

Young Billy Young (1969)

This proves to be a peculiar western for a variety of reasons that casts a major western star in a by the numbers “B” effort that has a hard time […]

Shoot Out (1971)

Shoot Out represents the final western to be directed by Henry Hathaway. A man who had given us a wide variety of successful oaters including Rawhide, Nevada Smith and True […]

The Sons of Katie Elder (1965)

If you like westerns and John Wayne, then for my money it’s nearly impossible not to love this movie. As a matter of fact it might be the most enjoyable […]

Blue (1968)

If Sean Connery can star in Shalako, then surely Terence Stamp can star in a western all his very own. In this case it’s Blue, from director Silvio Narizzano and […]

Johnny Guitar (1954)

I hadn’t actually seen this Nicholas Ray western since I was first discovering films as a kid and my tuning in to see it on a late show was mainly […]

Wake of the Red Witch (1948)

This film produced during John Wayne’s tenure with Republic Studios not only offers one of the better non western adventures of his career but also as a film we can […]

Man In The Vault (1956)

With a number of familiar names and faces by way of Batjac productions comes this nifty “B” thriller in black and white for the double bill crowd. If many of […]

Day of the Evil Gun (1968)

A hardened Glenn Ford begrudgingly teams up with an unsavory Arthur Kennedy in this variation on the The Searchers theme by way of MGM and director Jerry Thorpe. Along the way […]

Cahill : United States Marshall (1973)

“You call the tune and you pay the piper. Meaning… you don’t like the treatment, don’t rob the banks. ” When a line like that is spoken by John Wayne, it’s […]

Fair Wind to Java (1953)

Good or bad, there’s always something that grabs my attention about a seafaring adventure from yesteryear when it comes to movies. Sure this Fred MacMurray title falls closer to bad […]

An Eye For An Eye (1966)

While watching this western that was released nearing the end of the western craze you can’t help but wonder when John Wayne might make an appearance. And why not. When […]
