Film Review

This is one of the lesser-known entries in the John Wayne canon, and one of the last few films he made, six years before he died and three before his career came to a triumphant end with "The Shootist". Wayne plays Lane, a grizzled old Civil War veteran turned gunman, who is hired by an attractive young widow named Mrs. Lowe to recover $500,000 in stolen gold. Mrs Lowe's husband was one of the gang that originally stole the gold, but was later murdered, and she has decided to recover it and return it to its rightful owners. Her motivation (apart from a reward being offered for its safe return) is that she believes that by doing so she will clear her husband's name and that her young son will not have to grow up thinking his father was a thief. Lane puts together a gang, including some old Civil War comrades, to help him in his quest, but they soon find out that they are being tailed by the late Mr Lowe's accomplices in crime, who are determined to recover the …

For someone who owns all but a few of John Wayne's movies, The Train Robbers was one that I had missed. This is not a great movie. Gorgeous scenery does not a movie make. John Wayne seems disinterested in the whole production with more than half the movie spent either riding horses with backdrops of beautiful scenery, wasting time on little activities that don't further the story or drinking coffee while small talking at camp by firelight. This is a 30 minute caper of a western, stretched to 90 minutes.Between John Wayne phoning it in and the attempts at clever dialog, the whole film was boring and stiff with a half hour of interesting story. The worst part however was the music. The music did not fit the action. It was a soundtrack for settling a new world or going on a great epic cause. The tension of John Wayne and his group being followed by an army of hired guns was just never there.This is a one-time-through movie if you like westerns and especially John Wayne but it i…

One of the good, though less talked about John Wayne films that sort of slipped between the cracks of True Grit and Rooster Cogburn, The Train Robbers is a bit light-weight most of the time, but a lot of fun, especially the exciting cat-and-mouse game played out in the final thirty minutes.Writer/director Burt Kennedy wrote some of the best unsung westerns ever. Each of them are loaded with the nuances that almost every modern attempt at the genre seems to lack, things like hard decision making and the hazards of crossing the frontier, stuff that made this and other Kennedy-scripted movies really satisfying.It's great to see the Duke here, riding alongside such great co-stars as Rod Taylor, Ben Johnson, and Christopher George, though Ann-Margaret seems a bit miscast. With her in the movie, you can pretty much guess the final scene way in advance!From the fifties onward, Wayne made a point to cast young teen idols, singers, and up-and-comers in his pictures, like Tab Hunter, Fabia…
