Rating: B- -- Wayne is decent, but this is a compromised Western due to the fact that ailing director Michael Curtiz (it's his last film) has no appreciation for the genre. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Charming and agreeable, it moves along at a good clip. Shot in widescreen saturated CinemaScope, ... it's entertaining in a predictable way. Full Review

Rating: B- -- Lively and cheerful, but too banal to be a top-rate Curtiz or Wayne film; nevertheless it's a pleasingly entertaining film. Full Review

Oct 15, 2005
Rating: 4/5 -- Because he was largely a journeyman filmmaker who took whatever jobs the studio assigned him, most historians and critics regard Michael Curtiz merely as a capable gun-for-hire who was lucky enough to find himself attached to good projects. Full Review

Description by

In this explosive and absorbing Wild West adventure, John Wayne stars as Captain Cutter, a fearless Texas Ranger determined to crush a violent gang of gunrunners and thieves known as The Comancheros. Through an unlikely turn of events, Cutter enlists the help of his own prisoners to accomplish his mission. Also featuring an all-star cast that includes Stuart Whitman, Lee Marvin, Edgar Buchanan and Patrick Wayne, and a catchy soundtrack by Elmer Bernstein, this fast-paced Western is pure entertainment from start to finish.

Product Description:

John Wayne is a Texas Ranger in this rollicking, good humored western, assigned to bring an arms-running gang to justice. After Wayne arrests one of the criminals, matters are complicated when they wander into an area controlled by the Comancheros: a group of Anglos aiding the warring Comanche Indians. Based on the novel by Paul I. Wellman, THE COMANCHEROS was the last film for director Michael Curtiz (CASABLANCA).


Production Notes:

  • Shot in CinemaScope.
  • The battle sequences were directed by Cliff Lyons.
  • Some outdoor locations were filmed in Moab, Utah.
