Storyline

Big Jake McCandles is on the trail on bandits in this action drama that stretches from Texas to Mexico. It's 1909, and the Old West is giving way to modern times. When the outlaw gang led bu vicious John Fain raids Jake's ranch and kidnaps his 8-year-old grandson, Jake's wife, whom he hasn't seen in 18 years, sends for her husband to rescue the boy. While the law gives chase in rickety automobiles, Jake saddles up with an Indian scout, a faithful dog, and a box of money. But paying ransom isn't Jake's idea of good old frontier justice.

Classic19 February 2013

I have been watching this for over 30 years and I still tingle each time the camera pans back from the first image of Jake McCandles. And I still cry at the end (with happiness - no John Wayne film ever ends sadly!). Not for everyone, but just my cup of tea.

I liked it.23 July 2011

Set at the turn of the 19th century you see a passing of an age; the mechanical age is supplanting that of the horse driven age. You see this reflected in the struggle between the generations of the McCandles family. But, John Wayne shows there is plenty of worth in the old ways, and he isn't... more
