Jimmy Stewart and John Wayne, together in a John Ford film. There isn’t much more to ask for.
The fifth and final Western that Mann would work on together, and a wonderful film.
“Nothing I have been told about these people is correct. They are not thieves or beggars. They are not the bogeymen they are made out to be.” – Kevin Costner as John Dunbar
“No no no no, you see it’s a gun fight. We both have guns. We aim, we fire, you die.” – Leonardo DiCaprio as The Kid
“You think I am brave because I carry a gun; well, your fathers are much braver because they carry responsibility, for you, your brothers, your sisters, and your mothers. And this responsibility is like a big rock that weighs a ton. It bends and it twists them until finally it buries them under the ground. And there’s nobody says they have to do this. They do it because they love you, and because they want to.” – Charles Bronson as O’Reilly
“When I left, those tin pans had all but given up. Their spirit was nearly broken. A man without spirit is whipped. But a preacher, he could give them faith.” – Richard Dysart as Coy Lahood
“You know, sometimes it takes a lot more courage to live than it does to die.” – Jimmy Stewart as Marshal Guthrie McCabe
“Among the annals of the great state of Texas may be found the story of the first drive on the famous Chisholm Trail. A story of one of the great cattle herds of the world, of a man and a boy.” – Red River Title Cards
