1970 M Contains violence.

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 photo-graphed by William H. Clothier" (The Warner Bros. Story), Chisum is the kind of sweeping, brawling Western that made Wayne endure as a star.

Unusual in that Wayne wasn't in every scene - usual bullying presence when he was. Standard plot for this kind of western.

This is a classic John Wayne western: cheesy but a very relaxing watch. A perfect selection (if you like Westerns) for a lazy afternoon.
