Product Overview

John Wayne had brawled bareknuckle, gunned down desperadoes, fought jungle wars and piloted the skies. But The Cowboys gave him one of his juiciest roles as a leather-tough rancher who, deserted by his regular help, hires 11 greenhorn schoolboys for a cattle drive across 400 treacherous miles.

When the dust settled, Wayne had given one of his best performances. "In The Cowboys," Rex Reed wrote, "all the forces that have made him a dominant personality as well as a major screen presence seem to combine. Old Dusty Britches can act." Co-starring the equally memorable Roscoe Lee Browne, Colleen Dewhurst and Bruce Dern, The Cowboys is exciting proof.

Review The Cowboys is with out a doubt, one of the best westerns ever made. The film is very likable to most viewers. The reason is the superb character development and acting...The young boys all do an outstanding job of acting in the film. Then, there is John Wayne. For fans of western films, It just don't get any better than John Wayne...He is a natural in this movie. He plays an excellent father figure to the boys...The acting by the entire cast was splendid! The character development was just excellent!...The cinematography was shot well. When combined with the scenery, it turned out very good...The script in this film was great. It is intelligent and keeps the viewer intrigued throughout the movie. The score and the directing are a step above the rest. John Wayne & The Cowboys is one that almost any viewer would like. I give this film five of five stars. It is simply one of the best westerns ever made.

Review The Cowboys raises a significant question for any critic. Can a film which is ideologically and morally repugnant to the viewer also be entertaining and even moving? Basically, it's Death Wish with Western trappings but even less subtlety...Yet it's also constantly enjoyable, exciting, sometimes genuinely affecting and beautifully acted...Ultimately, the whole film works despite its decided shortcomings. It looks fantastic, courtesy of Robert Surtees' rich and evocative lighting - anachronistically but perhaps appropriately inspired by the work of Norman Rockwell - and the glorious location work, and sounds even better thanks to John Williams whose work on this movie is among his very finest...Wayne's character is given tolerance for other colours and religions in a clear attempt by filmmakers who were, elsewhere in their career, impeccably liberal to dilute the ugliness of the overall message.
