RED RIVER (1948)
Arguably Howard Hawks' greatest film, RED RIVER established John Wayne once and for all as a major star, after some two decades of variable success; he'd remain a box office force for the next 25 years. Wayne plays a swaggering cattle baron, riding his men, his herd and himself hard across the Texas range to the railhead in Kansas. On the verge of a crackup and having descended into tyranny, Wayne is relieved of his command by his adopted son Montgomery Clift, setting up a Western-style Oedipal showdown. DIR/PROD Howard Hawks; SCR Borden Chase, Charles Schnee. U.S., 1948, b&w, 133 min. NOT RATED
