Product Details

Product Description


Notorious as the first John Wayne film that does the unthinkable--subject Wayne's character to a nasty fate after only a short time--the 1972 Cowboys isn't much more interesting beyond that. The story finds Wayne playing a rancher who takes 11 boys on a cattle drive. They run into a nut case (Bruce Dern) who deprives the kids of their leader, and the rest of the film is a tale of revenge. Mark Rydell (Cinderella Liberty) directs an unexciting production, although performances by some of the younger actors such as A. Martinez and Robert Carradine are memorable. The DVD release has a widescreen presentation, trailers for 13 of Wayne's films, a featurette, optional French soundtrack, and optional French subtitles. --Tom Keogh

Nobody could ever better the Duke. He was one of the best western actors of the 20th century. He's going to be missed.

This is my wife's favourite John Wayne movie. He is the same as he always is but the kids make the movie. They are very good and Bruce Dern does his usual good job as the very bad man. It follows Jennings book quite closely and both the book and movie rate 4 of 5 for me.

Not your typical "duster"starring "the Duke" although there's cattle, horses and cowboys. Instead more of a coming of age ,good versus evil with healing between generations and races. An interesting mix and very enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Example for Students Dec 8 1999
Format:VHS Tape
While I liked The Cowboys every bit as well as any John Wayne movie (except perhaps The Quiet man and Red River), I was quite disappointed when I saw it the first time. I often used it when teaching high school English as an example of the differences between the movie and the book.
When I learned that The Cowboys was coming out as a movie, I read the book. Throughout the story I could imagine how The Duke would portray Wil Anderson in the movie. Heck, I'd seen most of his movies, and I thought I had him cold.
Then I saw the movie, and John Wayne screwed it up! He didn't do it like he did in the movie I saw in my head while reading the book. Very few of the scenes in his rather short appearance lived up to my expectations.
The Cowboys became my best teaching example of how the visions we see in our heads while reading are often more real and vivid than what appears on the screen.
Don't get me wrong. The Cowboys is an excellent movie, and John Wayne's portrayal of Wil Anderson was certainly masterful. It's just that it fell short of my expectations--or were my expectations too high?
