Apache war drums sound an ominous warning for an isolated female rancher and her young son in this exciting and memorable John Wayne classic. Wayne plays Hondo Lane, a cavalry rider who becomes the designated protector of the strong-willed Angie Lowe (Geraldine Page) as well as a father figure to her boy, Johnny (Lee Aaker). Angie, determinedly awaiting the return of her brutish husband (Leo Gordon), refuses to leave their homestead despite the growing danger from nearby warring Native American tribes. And she finds herself growing more and more enthralled with this stranger, Hondo – a man hardened by experience but still capable of sympathy, kindness and love. Ward Bond, Michael Pate, James Arness and Rodolfo Acosta co-star; Page received an Academy Award® nomination for Best Supporting Actress in this, one of her first film roles.

Another great John Wayne western! Excellent acting, down to the smallest part. An appearance by James Arness as a semi-bad guy was a treat. Read morePublished 26 days ago by Wanda Jones

I've compared it to the DVD fullscreen release, and it looks like the widescreen is cropped from the fullscreen, rather than the reverse. There's quite a lot of material missing at top and bottom in the Blu-ray,... Read More
