Reviews of movies with John Wayne

Performer (9 titles)

  1. Rio Bravo (1959)

    5 Stars (out of 5) Rio Bravo is my favorite movie but I can't imagine how to review it.

  2. The Searchers (1956)

    5 Stars (out of 5) The Searchers is a very good film about a very flawed man.

  3. His Private Secretary (1933)

    2 Stars (out of 5) Foreshadowing a career playing characters with great names, John Wayne plays a wealthy socialite named Dick Wallace.

  4. Riders of Destiny (1933)

    2 Stars (out of 5) Riders of Destiny is not a good movie, but it is an important one.

  5. Sagebrush Trail (1933)

    3 Stars (out of 5) The underwater scenes in Sagebrush Trail belie its shoestring budget.

  6. The Telegraph Trail (1933)

    2 Stars (out of 5) Young John Wayne gets his best supporting cast in years, but the resulting picture still stinks.

  7. Haunted Gold (1932)

    1 Star (out of 5) I like John Wayne, but I struggled with Haunted Gold.

  8. Ride Him, Cowboy (1932)

    2 Stars (out of 5) In Ride Him, Cowboy, a town puts a horse on trial for attempted murder. This may not be the film's most ridiculous scene.

  9. The Big Stampede (1932)

    1 Star (out of 5) The Big Stampede has little to recommend it.
