The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance 1962

From Amazon: "When the legend becomes fact, print the legend." That's more than the code of a newspaperman in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance; it's practically the operating credo of director John Ford, the most honored of American filmmakers. In this late film from a long career, Ford looks at the civilizing of an Old West town, Shinbone, through the sad memories of settlers looking back. In the town's wide-open youth, two-fisted Westerner John Wayne and tenderfoot newcomer James Stewart clash over a woman (Vera Miles) but ultimately unite against the notorious outlaw Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin).

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance Movie Review by BillyBob (8/23/2012)

One of the most satisfying aspects of this rather disappointing 1960s Western was that JOHN WAYNE's character, Tom Doniphon, was already dead when the story opened.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance Movie Review by Derringer (5/25/2010)

Released in 1962 - This remarkable film teamed up 2 Western Greats (JAMES STEWART and JOHN WAYNE) in what would turn out to be Director JOHN FORD's farewell to the Movie-Western.

Set in the year 1910 - Senator Rance Stoddard, and his wife, Hallie, return after many, long years to their old hometown of Shinbone, Texas, to...
