Ranking with Stagecoach as one of the greatest of its genre, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance is the modern-day western to beat all westerns. John Ford, whose very name is synonymous with "westerns," directed the ideal cast. Jimmy Stewart plays the bungling but charming big-city lawyer determined to rid the fair village of Shinbone of its number one nuisance and bad man: Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin). And as if all that weren't enough, the biggest star that ever aimed a six-shooter plays the Man of the title: John Wayne. Super sincere Stewart and rugged rancher Wayne also share the same love interest (Vera Miles). One gets the gunman, but the other gets the gal.
This is simple the most enjoyable western you good hope to see. John Wayne is excellent as is Jimmy Stewart and the rest of the cast. If the story doesn't bring a tear to your eye you have no soul. As the last line says "nothings to good for the man who shot Liberty Valance" and there it is another tear running down your cheek.
