JOHN WAYNE DOUBLE FEATURE: RIO LOBO & BIG JAKE REVIEWED
“Rio Lobo” is a collection of Western stars and talents realizing that the end is near. John Wayne plays a cowboy trying to avenge being betrayed at the end of the Civil War. His close friend died and the man that caused it is nearby. Will justice be served? “Big Jake” finds John Wayne playing a grandfather trying to rescue his grandson. It’s a family movie, but the Duke’s declining health was starting to become apparent here. Plus, it wouldn’t be long before he was straight into slow-moving cop movies.
I love these Cinema Center Films, but I wish that Paramount would compile these on Blu in a box set. Oh well, it’s good to wish.
