Big Jake

Director: George Sherman Cast: John Wayne, Richard Boone, Maureen O'Hara


When his grandson (played by real-life son Ethan Wayne) is kidnapped by scurrilous baddie Richard Boone, Big Jake (John Wayne) sets out to deliver the $1 million ransom. On the off-chance that there'll be gunplay, Jake brings along his sons Patrick Wayne and Chris Mitchum. Maureen O'Hara plays Jake's estranged wife and Bruce Cabot provides comedy relief as a scraggly Indian Scout.

This movie has been a family favorite for years. My children watched it on VHS when they were growing up. I recommended it to a young friend who was not familiar with John Wayne's work and discovered I did not have it in my DVD collection. I had to buy it immediately. It's up there with True Grit and The Cowboys as one of his best. It's also a family affair with two of his sons in the cast and two of his favorite co stars, Maureen O'Hara and Richard Boone as well. Great performances. Snappy dialog. If you haven't seen it, you should.

what can i say. any john wayne movie is a classic. He is a handsome man and a good lead character. i watched the movie as a child in the 80s and i still watch it as an adult. Westerns are becomming outdated here in california, but i think it made its mark and people will all know who john wayne is. i recommend it to anyone.
