Product Description

Chisum showcases John Wayne in the twilight of his remarkable 200+-film career. As John Chisum, a real-life cattle king determined to protect his empire against a land-grabbing developer (Forrest Tucker). Wayne''s no-nonsense persona snugly fits this lively reworking of the events of New Mexico''s 1878 Lincoln County War. "Directed in fine sagebrush style by Andrew V. McLaglen and beautifully photographed by William H. Clothier" (The Warner Bros. Story), Chisum is the kind of sweeping, brawling Western that made Wayne endure as a star.

Although Chisum stars John Wayne--playing a benign variation on his Red River empire-builder --he''s curiously sidelined in this umpteenth retelling of Pat Garrett, William Bonney, and the Lincoln County War. Sam Peckinpah would direct the world-class version of that götterdämmerung, Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, three years later. This version, directed by Andrew V. McLaglen in a slightly less broad vein than usual, is just odd--not least because it omits Garrett and Bonney''s celebrated final confrontation. Geoffrey Deuel''s Billy is a pleasant juvenile who scarcely seems delinquent, let alone murderously psychotic. Glenn Corbett''s characterization of Garrett consists mainly of wearing a seriously BIG hat. There''s an irksome rivalry for Chisum''s perky niece (Pamela McMyler), and a Dominic Frontiere score that''s the Western equivalent of elevator music. Chief scoundrel Forrest Tucker seems bored, but Christopher George, Richard Jaeckel, and Bruce Cabot get some juice into their villainy. --Richard T. Jameson
