A texas ranger must stop a band of outlaws who are supplying guns to the indians.

"Well-paced actioner...  Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide

Editor's Note
John Wayne is a Texas Ranger in this rollicking, good humored western, assigned to bring an arms-running gang to justice. After Wayne arrests one of the criminals, matters are complicated when they wander into an area controlled by the Comancheros: a group of Anglos aiding the warring Comanche Indians. Based on the novel by Paul I. Wellman, THE COMANCHEROS was the last film for director Michael Curtiz (CASABLANCA).

Professional Reviews

NeedCoffee.com 9 of 10
There is action aplenty and the dialogue between the action scenes moseys easily between carefree and witty to caring and endearing with an ease that is scary. Of course, it doesn't hurt that most of the words in this script are shared between Wayne and Whitman who seemed to have created the genre of "buddy film" right there on the set. They work together very well. And not that this is surprising, but the scenery in this movie will take your breath away...If you are not acquainted with the works of John Wayne, this is definitely the film with which to have your initiation. At the very least rent it, but I'm recommending that it stay on your shelf permanently.

DVD Verdict 9 of 10
In this 1961 Western from director Michael Curtiz (Casablanca), Captain Jake Cutter of the Texas Rangers (John Wayne) is forced to enlist the aid of his prisoner, gambler Paul Regret (Stuart Whitman), to track down a gang of criminals who call themselves The Comancheros.

One of the best things about The Comancheros is that it employs the organic narrative flow that works so well in Westerns. The plot description above hardly does justice to the picaresque tangents through which the film wanders. Unlike Ethan Edwards, Wayne's more famous Indian fighter from John Ford's The Searchers (1956), Jake Cutter is hardly singularly focused on his mission to track down the Comancheros...What could be a narrative liability, works as a strength in a film set in the vast, unspoiled plains of 19th-century Texas. - Dan Mancini
