A pure classic, with Jimmy Stewart playing his Jimmy Stewartiest and John Wayne playing his John Wayneiest. The script is what elevates this to what is possibly John Ford's best work. One of the boundary lines between classic Westerns and modern deconstructions: this succeeds as both.

(100 Westerns Project #1:) Really enjoyed my first John Wayne movie ever, ironically one that features him in more of a supporting role. It does have a bit of a cheap backlot sort of look to it, but the contrast in the two central men's views on civilization and law and how to solve the Liberty Valance issue makes for a consistently involving morality tale, one with an admirably bittersweet aftertaste and many memorable characters and moments.

I don't normally care about aged politics but this was a little much. Still a great performance by Stewart. Also my uncle who is a schizophrenic has the exact same voice as Lee Marvin

"This is the west. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend." The first time I saw the movie I enjoyed a great western with great cinematography, characters and story. The second time I found more depth and allegory. I appreciated Wayne's character especially even more. Sure, Stewart was too old for his role, but you forget this as you become absorbed, unless you're looking for reasons to dislike. I believe Stewart and Wayne themselves are crucial to the tale. John Ford is a master.

Proving that the revisionist Western did not begin in the late 60's, T.M.W.S.L.V deconstucts the myths of the Old West and by extension, the entire myth making enterprise that is synonymous with nationhood, without being overly loud or preachy. Wayne and Stewart were undeniably too old for their roles---Stewart playing a fresh college graduate in 1962 is just laughable--but the performances ring true and the set pieces are memorable, while the ending is classic Hollywood, thoughtful and moving.

Ford's sense of humor is quaint, the intentionally stock characters are unpalatable, and the main conflict resolves half an hour too early. It really does look great though.

We must include one John Wayne movie, the quintessential cowboy hero. Good friend Jimmy Stewart is also in this story as the small town lawyer forced to pick up a gun to battle the evil Liberty Valence. The Duke joins in the quest which brings them friendship but unfortunately fall in love with the same woman.
