THE WAR WAGON (Theatrical Release USA 1967)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

The War Wagon—one of John Wayne’s better films—is told well and presented well. The story, as are many westerns, does not reach classic status, but does receive a higher score than most westerns because Wayne, by this date, has completely matured as an actor with a strong, visible, dominating screen presence. Kirk Douglas plays as co-actor. The duo make a great team. Watch for other classic actors: Bruce Cabot, Bruce Dern, Howard Keel, and Keenan Wynn. It’s an honest watch and deserves addition to the home video library.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Despite its age, this movie is more than worth watching. It has lost none of its entertainment value through the years.
