Red river

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

One of the finest westerns ever made, this masterpiece features impassioned performances, stunning cinematography and adventure on a grand scale. Starring John Wayne, Montgomery Clift in his screen debut, Walter Brennan, Harry Carey Sr and Noah Beery Junior, Red river is a hard-hitting, action-packed adventure that captures the grandeur, majesty - and danger - of the wild American west. Wayne gives "one of the best performances of his career" (Cinebooks) as Tom Dunson, a self-made cattle baron who'll do anything to protect his way of life. So when plummeting livestock values demand that he drive his herd through the treacherous Chisholm Trail, Tom proves that he'll risk anything to reach his destination... even his own sanity.
