Product Description

Product Description

Veteran Western director Andrew V. McLaglen puts his brand on this exciting story, based on America's acquisition of English Hereford cattle (which would phase out Texas longhorns). In the 1880s, Englishwoman Martha Price (Maureen O'Hara) and her daughter Hilary (Juliet Mills) come to America to sell their prize Hereford bull at an auction. When he is purchased by Bowen, a wild Scotsman (Brian Keith), the women hire a footloose cowhand named Burnett (James Stewart) to help them transport the animal to its new owner. So begins an adventure that test the mettle of all involved as they battle killers, cattle stampedes - and each other. But when they reach Bowen's ranch, even greater obstacles force them to summon up extraordinary courage if they, and the prize bull, are to survive.

A very offbeat subject gives this Western its beefy flavor: English lady Maureen O'Hara brings a prize Hereford bull to the Wild West, where she plans to introduce its hardy bloodline into longhorn country. Cattle puncher James Stewart finds the idea suspect, but he likes this redhead, so he manages to tag along through stampede, gunfight, and blizzard. Director Andrew V. McLaglen generally steers a pleasing course, although the movie occasionally stumbles between brawling comedy and western drama. One stunt sequence, a run of longhorns through a desert canyon, qualifies as a hair-raiser. Brian Keith, wearing a gigantic red beard, does a Scots accent as a cattle baron, and veteran cowhands Ben Johnson and Jack Elam are around to lend atmosphere. The big bull's name is Vindicator, and he obeys whenever Juliet Mills whistles "God Save the Queen"--did we mention this is a very offbeat subject for a Western? --Robert Horton

Format: VHS Tape
THE RARE BREED is a film about the delivery of a white-faced Hereford bull from England to the Texas range for breeding purposes. The man responsible for the task is James Stewart. The women who own the bull are Maureen O'Hara and her daughter played by Juliet Mills. THE RARE BREED is a fairly good Western with strong performances by Stewart and O'Hara. A fine supporting cast includes Brian Keith, Don Galloway and David Brian.
Andrew V. McLaglen directed many other good movies such as MCLINTOCK and SHENANDOAH.

This is a movie I waited for on tv, so when it was available on DVD, I grabbed it. Exactly what I expected -- great cast with Brian Keith in one of his absolutely best roles; James Stewart and Maureen O'Hara excellent too. Good story, beautiful colour and scenery. This is one of my favority oldies. .

Jimmy Stewart had a habit of making good movies and this is one of them. It tells the story of introducing hereford(or herford) cattle to the united states and it does it partly lighthearted and partly serious. Brian Keith shows up as well as absolutely wonderful former scottish highlander soldier who's taken up ranching in the west. Keith is just great as the old cantankerous scottsman. The herford bull(named vindicator) is cleverly portrayed as well without being silly.

When I purchased this dvd ,it came first of all in a broken case ,,which
I have sent 3 or 4 emails and made 3 or 4 calls regarding this.They all
say they have sent me 4 jewel cases as this was not the only one I got
damaged .This began in March with no dvds received yet. As for the dvd
it was not in the widescreen format which was dissappointing as the others
all were .I sent this dvd back to you on November 8 ,I was told I would get
a refund as you dont do replacements within 3 weeks nothing yet.That was 7
weeks ago .As you know I have purchased several dvds and had planned on
buying several more, but dont know now .thankyou for any help you can be

Classic Western with good acting (some minor exceptions)by classic actors. The story is true western, but not trite. If you like westerns, you'll like this one.
