I must say that I really found this western enjoyable, and was a fitting way for the Duke to finish his legendary career. During the filming of this film Wayne knew he had cancer and this helps in the portrail of the character as he is dying from the illness. The film examines the last days of the gunfighter J. B. Brooks and his last days. Due to Wayne suffering from the illness it helps give the character believability and honestly, for this reason Wayne should have won an oscar.
This was a moving film for me, especially since it was the Duke's last. It was nice to see Jimmy Stewart the legend that he was on the screen with Wayne, and was a brilliant choice for his role, along with Lauren Bacall.
On the whole this is a fitting tribute to a legend of screen and of the genre, and highly recommend to viewed by fans of the Duke and Westerns, there isn't much gun slinging and action compared to some westerns but nevertheless this is an awesome film, and worth watching and purchasing at this excellent price! Enjoy!
