    A Portrayal of the Essence of Manhood

    I sat from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on a Saturday and Sunday mesmerized by this film. I was 9 years old and had to await the release of "first run" films from the Chicago Loop theaters to the neighborhood houses. Films did not have starting times then. You went to the movie whenever you got there, picked up the film at whatever point it was being shown and then sat thru the begining again until it reached that point. I wore out three of my friends watching this film over and over again (and eating lots of popcorn) It was on tv only once in the 70's. I was thrilled to see last the DVD released last year! It was the basis of my Christmas giving this last Season! (As was "Lonesome Dove" and the "Whirly Pop" stove top popcorn popper in prior years! I think "Hondo" is a much see film and a must read book for all young folks!

    Wayne Mesmerizing in Hondo

    I first saw this movie in 1953 when I was 11 years of age. I remember sitting in the front row and seeing Wayne cast this huge shadow as an Indian Scout adrift in the desert somewhere during the 1890's. He was born to play a cowboy and was so adept at it that his overall efforts were largely overlooked in these roles. This movie and "The Searchers" were undoubtedly worthy of Oscars but he made his work looked so effortless that no one thought he was working.
