Product Description

John Wayne, that pillar of machismo, was well aware that costar Rock Hudson was gay, yet he prized him as a boon companion, a fellow professional, and one hell of a bridge player. Each plays a Civil War commander who, after the ceasefire, leads a community of home folks into Mexico to make a fresh start. Hudson is a Southern gentleman; Wayne commanded the Yankee cavalry at Shiloh, where Hudson's brother died. Nevertheless, Rock, with his extended family, and Duke, with his troop of cowboys and 3,000 horses to sell to Emperor Maximilian, soon join forces to outgun banditos and beam paternally over the budding romance between their respective daughter and son (an adopted Indian played by footballer Roman Gabriel with Crystal Gayle hair). Lingering North-South animosities are celebrated in an obligatory communal fistfight in the Andrew V. McLaglen manner, and the showdown with both Maximilian's lancers and the rebel Juaristas is disconcertingly perfunctory. --Richard T. Jameson

5.0 out of 5 stars John Wayne Nov. 24 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
John Wayne was one of the best Western stars in history and always was my favorite. He never made a bad or boring movie in any movie he made.

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I have fond memories of this 1969 film because of the way that I first happened to see it. When my father was stationed in Japan we would have the opportunity every couple of months to go see a late show at the base theater. The movie to be screened was never announced; you just went and took your chances. One time it was "One More Time" (Peter Lawford plays Lord Sydney Pepper and Sammy Davis, Jr. was Charlie Salt) and another time it was "Beneath the Planet of the Apes" (I guessed the movie on the basis of the opening shot of the waves coming ashore). One night we went and the movie starts off with a bunch of Confederate soldiers waiting for attack and then along comes John Wayne leading a Union cavalry charge and we got to see "The Undefeated" weeks before its normal rotation to our theater.
Actually, John Wayne is not the best part of this film. The opening scenes deal with the end of the Civil War. Wayne plays Colonel John Henry Thomas, whose men have followed him from Texas to fight for the Union and are not sick of soldiering and ready to go home. The plan is that they are going to put together a herd of wild horses and sell them to representatives of the Mexican government, who are offering the best price. Of course, Mexico might be about to have its own Civil War. Meanwhile, the defeat of the Confederacy and the arrival of Northern carpetbaggers have convinced Colonel James Langdon (Rock Hudson) and his men that there is nothing left for them in the South. So his plan is to lead his men and their families to Mexico to serve in the military for the government of the Emperor Maximillian trying to hold onto power.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Duke and the Rock Finally Together! March 14 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
If you're a fan of either one of these late cinematic giants, you won't be disappointed by viewing this flick. Both Wayne and Hudson were quite versatile actors, but their roles in Westerns appear to be their most memorable. There's a fine supporting cast in this film which includes the two well-known former National Football League stars Roman Gabriel and Merlin Olsen making their acting debuts. Although the plot of this movie may not be historically accurate, the average fan of western films will find this feature entertaining. A western starring the Duke would not be complete without an elaborate donnybrook; the one in this picture doesn't disappoint. Overall, this film is worth a look-see.

4.0 out of 5 stars Often overlooked is the GREAT MUSIC March 7 2004
Format:DVD
Of course, I'm a John Wayne fan, so I probably can't be terribly objective about this movie. Obviously, there are serious holes in the story (a Confederate colonel will let his daughter ride off with a Cherokee????? Nahhhhhhh). What is often overlooked is the marvelous score by Hugo Montenegro. This is one of the great western soundtracks, just a step behind the all time greats (The Big Country and The Magnificent Seven). If you're into western soundtracks, you probably already have seen this movie, but if not, don't miss the marvelous work done with the trombone sections.
The movie is entertaining, and with a great deal of humor. Actually, this is probably one of Rock Hudson's better roles ( I can't bear him in those fluffy Doris Day comedies) in that his comedic talents are allowed to shine without being ridiculous. Loved Roman Gabriel as a football player.....but as an actor...well, um, noooooo.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRAVO!!! Feb. 22 2004
Format:DVD
Definitely a great Post-Civil War Western and one of my personal favorites, The Undefeated, brings to the screen such heavyweights as John Wayne and Rock Hudson, whose performances are outstanding, making this movie one of the best of its kind. The acting, the battles and the costumes are all wonderful!
The Undefeated is a movie about honor, bravery, and heroes from a time long gone.
A great movie indeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Undefeated Nov. 2 2010
Format:DVD
John Wayne is my hero, has always been. I had seen this movie before and wanted to add it to my collection of favorites which I consider as being like old friends. Enjoyed the interaction between John and Rock. Great scenery as well. To me it is a feel good comfort movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Demise of the Western Feb. 20 2004
Format:DVD
Andrew V. McLaglen (the director of this rubbish) and Burt Kennedy (a contemporary who churned out equally worthless films) managed to kill the western genre during the late 1960s through the mid 1970s. These guys honestly make Kevin Costner westerns seem like masterpieces. THE UNDEFEATED typifies their magic formula of big name stars, no script, gunfights every 27 minutes, a blaring soundtrack, a little bit of slapstick, and a lot of bad acting. Add a touch of young love and NFL players who want to be actors and voila -- you have a memorable cinematic experience like THE UNDEFEATED!
The only people who will find this entertaining are John Wayne fans -- who will have their loyalty to the screen legend tested by this film -- and those who still argue for the nobility of the Confederacy. This latter group are probably heartbroken at the film's ending when Rock Hudson and company are not successful in establishing a Confederate haven in Mexico from which they can continue to fight for the valiant cause of the South. Alas. Rock Hudson as Colonel James Langdon embodies the prototypical Confederate hero who loves his slaves, loves the South even more, is a proper gentleman, and will burn his plantation estate before he lets Yankee carpetbaggers get their hands on his Eden. Bravo! Perhaps my favorite scene is when Rock gives one of his older slaves his daddy's gold watch. The poignancy is overwhelming. I guess the message is: I'll give you this priceless antique before I give you your freedom.
Even without this Southern revisionist crap, THE UNDEFEATED would be awful. The only reason it gets one star is that John Wayne's sideburns in this film absolutely rock. In fact, I would have been much more entertained by a film about the Duke's sideburns and Rock Hudson's mustache. Maybe Andrew V. McLaglen will use that idea for a directorial comeback vehicle!!! We can only hope.
