Review

Our Score
Director Andrew V McLaglen could always be depended upon to hammer out gruff, good-looking westerns from the most unpromising material. Here he saddles up John Wayne and a skilled supporting cast for a parable on the extent to which modern youth had been corrupted while America was away solving the problems of the world. As a political statement, it's reactionary and naive, but it nonetheless passes muster as a late Wayne vehicle, with the Duke looking every day of his 66 years as the absentee father out to teach villainous George Kennedy a lesson for enticing his teenage sons into crime.

Summary

A marshal devotes more time to his job than to his teenage sons, who end up robbing a bank in an act of rebellion. When the lawman learns the youngsters were lured into a life of crime by a notorious outlaw, he embarks on a mission to bring them all to justice. Western, starring John Wayne, George Kennedy, Neville Bran, Gary Grimes and Clay O'Brien.
