Customer Reviews

The Cowboys

Perhaps one of his best performances of the 1970s, he takes boys and turns them into men. Some of the lessons here are rough, but all too common back in the day. So stop burning daylight and buy this, it's one great film.

One of Wayne's best performances

Including true grit and the searchers, this is one of John Wayne's best westerns, and one of his best portrayals from a novel.

My all time favorite John Wayne movie

One of very few movies John Wayne made that he died in. This is my all time favorite western. I have to buy this so I can watch it over and over again.
