A classic western, one of John Wayne's best ever, it will have viewer appeal for generations to come. It's about trust, faith, redemption, and the life-changing power of being a ''friend''. Filmed after some of his World War Two roles, John plays a maturing gunslinger who had a troubled youth. It's a great character, with unusual depth for this era of film. The contrast with Gail Russel seems insurmountable, but her love, her family, and its spiritual overtones, win ''Quirt'' over in the end. Lots of great bit parts. Keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
