Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Though a relatively standard western, 1965's popular The Sons of Katie Elder was one of the most entertaining films of John Wayne's late career. His first movie since returning from highly-publicized cancer surgery, Sons is something of a throwback; the film is free of the revisionism that was beginning to seep into the genre in the mid-to-late 1960s. Director Henry Hathaway helmed a number of successful Wayne vehicles, he plays to the actor's strengths while emphasizing the surprising chemistry between The Duke and Dean Martin. This was the second time Wayne and Martin had worked together, the first being Howard Hawks' Rio Bravo (1959).
