Product Description

Amazon.ca

Although scarcely seen in its original 3-D, and entirely out of sight for a decade and a half after its producer-star died, Hondo has maintained a high rep among John Wayne fans--and it wasn't even directed by Howard Hawks or John Ford. (Actually, Ford did shoot some second-unit stuff while visiting Wayne on location.) Half-breed Hondo, companioned only by an antisocial dog, tends to be more sympathetic toward the Apaches than toward the white society he occasionally scouts for. He falls into uneasy friendship with a New Mexico farmwoman (Geraldine Page) whose husband deserts her for long stretches, and whose son (Lee Aaker) is blood brother to the local Apache chieftain. A good, spare frontier tale--Louis L'Amour via James Edward (Angel and the Badman) Grant--in which danger and solace come in unexpected ways. John Farrow, who did direct, brings it in at a lean 84 minutes. Page was Oscar®-nominated for this first film role. --Richard T. Jameson

5.0 out of 5 stars Hondo Aug. 1 2006
By Marcia TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a John Wayne fan to the point I wrote a paper in University for my History of Film class featuring the movies of John Ford and Howard Hawks featuring John Wayne. While this is directed by John Farrow it follow's closely Ford's style. It is the first of his movies to show the Apache as a community with cultural differences, not as the 'bad guys'. The Apache are different from the caucasion interloper, but still of value as shown in the end when the ever-popular Ward Bond who Wayne used as a support actor in many of his movies, says: "There goes the Apache way of life". To which Wayne responds in his less-is-better way of speacking, "Too bad. Good way."

There is also romance. The scene when Wayne tell Geraldine Page "I can smell you when I'm down wind of you and I'm only half Indian" is well-written and moving. This movie is the quinessential gunfighter coming to the end of his way of life and settling down.

It follows the format of Shane in many ways as the gunfigher walks alone out of the desert into the world of the homesteader and tries to change his wandering way of life to fit into the settled way of life. Shane rides away alone having failed, but Hondo rides away with 'the girl'integrated into the settled way of life. It has all the western ingredients: a fight scene, a battle with the Apache, romance, and John's Wayne's honest, forthright style as a hero.

In Hondo he's a little like Ringo in Stagecoach, the film that made his career. This is my favourite John Wayne movie and I reccommend it for all generations. I bought it for my granddaughter who thinks of John Wayne as the perfect father-figure and my daughter who assures John Wayne is HOT in this movie. If your a fan of GOOD westerns this one is a gem! You'll want it for your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Wayne's forgotten western classic June 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This exciting and colorful 3D film was released over 50 years ago and remains an enjoyable action adventure today. With its distinctive peppermint-striped titles, "Hondo" is John Wayne's film and he is the title character who rides out of the desert to come to the aid of a young woman and her boy at their isolated ranch against the backdrop of Apache smoke signals and war drums. Hondo Lane is drawn to the plain yet steely Angie Lowe who is also interested in the dusty stranger but refuses to leave her ranch, instead choosing to wait for her ne'er-do-well husband who has abandoned them to their fate in Apache land. The film has a matter-of-fact approach in the relationship between Lane and Angie, and although there is tension between them in the beginning, Angie is convinced of the stranger's sincerity and is keenly aware that Johnny enjoys the man's presence on their ranch. Johnny's character is a key part of the film's plot as both Lane and Apache leader Vittorio seek to guide him towards manhood with the values of their very different social mores. The Apaches are presented as a fierce but proud people, as personified by Vittorio, who adopts Johnny as a blood brother because of the bravery and courage he displays in protecting his mother from the menacing sub-chief Silva. The battle scenes are exciting and colorful, with the blue and yellow cavalry colors contrasting with the dusty, brown-skinned calico-shirted warriors mounted on all manner of striking ponies against bright blue skies and thick, fluffy clouds. The sound effects during the battles, of whistling bullets and whizzing arrows striking their targets, are realistic and superb. The movie was filmed in Camargo, Mexico, an arid desert country studded with isolated, cone-shaped mesas, and the music score has a heroic quality that smoothly underscores the action sequences.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Duke has done better Feb. 10 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I am an avid fan of Louis LaMour's writing, and I was disappointed in this film's inaccuracy to the book. (What movie has ever followed a book accurately?) Someone please tell me. John Wayne plays his part well, and Geraldine Page is OK, but if anything, Ward Bond as Buffalo Baker might have been the most true-to-life performance of the film.
As a huge John Wayne fan, I automatically have to rank this movie higher than it probably deserves. I mean, who does westerns better than the Duke? Nobody. It's just too bad the western didn't hang around longer. I don't suppose it's coincedence that when the Duke died, for all intents and purposes so did the western. "Unforgiven" and "Dances With Wolves" are really the only two exceptions.
In short, if you're a John Wayne fan, this movie is for you. If you're not, I really don't think you'd like it. For the Duke it's worth seeing (hey, isn't any movie with the Duke in it?), but other than him, no.
