The cowboys

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

John Wayne had brawled bare-knuckle, gunned down desperadoes, fought jungle wars and piloted the skies, but The cowboys gave him one of his juiciest roles as Wil Andersen, a leather-tough rancher who, deserted by his regular help, hires 11 greenhorn schoolboys for a cattle drive across 667 treacherous kilometres.
