CHISUM (Theatrical Release USA 1970)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì 

Chisum—good western—entertains at a higher level than many western movies, even those that include John Wayne as the main character. It has a good, well-driven story and a great supporting cast that includes, among others, Ben Johnson. Watch for Bruce Cabot in this film. This is a good watch. Audience enjoyment of the film may be enhanced if some details are researched about John Chisum and the Chisum Trail before viewing.

The difficulties of moving cattle and horses get a graphic portrayal via the character of John Chisum.
