The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) - *****
This is soaring cinema. Take two screen legends (John Wayne and James Stewart), throw in a legendary Western director (John Ford) and what do you get? A classic. Crackling screen chemistry between just about everybody (which includes a whole host of Western veterans - Lee Van Cleef (The Bad in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly), Strother Martin, John Carradine...It is just about heaven for Western fans. A moving and thrilling story with plenty of humour and terrific performances that will entertain fans of the genre and convert the rest.
