Sometimes you’re just in the mood for a good Western, so what better film to scratch that itch than one starring two cinematic icons: John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart. Wayne plays the cowboy to Stewart’s naïve do-gooder who’s planning on opening up a law office in the town of Shinbone, where trouble surfaces in the form of outlaw Liberty Valance, played by Lee Marvin. Legendary director John Ford takes the opportunity here to comment on the state of the Western genre in 1962, after decades of personally making some of the best and most successful Westerns in history. Wordplay, gunfights, and a surprisingly emotional finale ensue. – Adam Chitwood
