Storyline

John Bernard Books, a gunfighter approaching his 58th birthday, finds that he has rectal cancer and two months to live. He takes a room with Bond Rogers and her son, Gillom, to wait until death comes. Of course, his very presence starts off events in the town. The Marshal comes, prepared to die in a shootout, Gillom tries to idolize him, Bond first is disgusted and then pities him. Then, realizing that he will die in great pain, he comes up with an idea to go out with a bang.

Good movie, sometimes slow (as most westerns are), but still worth to see.

I always wondered what happens to old gunfighters... Now I know! As gritty as it gets.

I liked the movie because it was a John Wayne and you have to like it. It's John Wayne! But no it wasn't his best.
