An underrated classic… Hondo (1953)

Hondo Italian Theater PosterThough not usually listed at the top of John Wayne fan films, ‘Hondo’ easily is one of the top five Duke films in a Western category. Sure, he won the war single-handedly in the 40’s and tamed the West all alone, but one time, he saved a single ranch and it’s widow (and originally, he did it in 3D).

If you include ‘The Searchers’ and ‘Angel and the Badman’, you get a very good rounding of Duke Westerns.

Classic, not epic, but popcorn all the way.
