Rating: 59/100 -- Those who favour the big-hearted Americana and rolling landscapes of non-revisionist westerns could do far worse than this movie. Full Review

Rating: B -- Hathaway's 1965 Western was extremely popular at the box office--it was John Wayne's first movie after his bout with cancer (I licked the Big C)-and its superior to the remake. Full Review

Product Description:

In this action-packed Western, three wandering sons return home to attend the funeral of their mother, Katie Elder, who's been murdered. The brothers then set their sights on the man responsible for her death, as well as for the death of their father, who was killed six months earlier. They receive help from a fourth brother, who has remained at home. However, getting revenge won't be easy because the culprit, who has also gained possession of the family's ranch, will do anything to stop them--including hiring an assassin to kill the oldest brother, John. This classic late-era John Wayne Western features a musical score that bears a suspicious resemblance to the MAGNIFICENT SEVEN theme. (Both were written by Elmer Bernstein.) Also starring in Henry Hathaway's excellent cast are Dean Martin, Earl Holliman, James Gregory, George Kennedy, and Dennis Hopper.
