Editorial Reviews

Don't mess with the Duke. especially when he's out for revenge! John Wayne, a slick gunfighter and lawyer returns home to avenge the murder of his parents by the local cattle baron (Cy Kendall). He first attempts to do so legally, but his efforts are thwarted and he resorts to taking the law into his own hands. Wayne joins a group of wronged landowners to battle the cattle baron and his gang of vicious henchmen. Fast-paced direction by Joseph Kane (Hoodlum Empire) and superior photography by Jack A. Marta (Cat Ballou) are just two of the highlights of this early great western. Muriel Evans (The New Frontier) once again plays Wayne's love interest.

3.0 out of 5 stars King of the Preteens September 9, 2006
Format:DVD
I'm a big fan of John Wayne. Even in my youthful liberal days, I always stood up for him whenever my friends on the left would disparage him and his acting. "Forget his politics" I would say, "He's an outstanding actor!" The comment that "He always played the same role" led me to observe, over the years, that this discription would apply to 90% of all screen actors. The idea that a strong, forceful man of principle is the discription of a character role just doesn't register. The main problem with the career of John Wayne was that he made numerous poor decisions in the movies he chose to make. However, that is a flaw of his years of stardom. He made a lot of clunkers before he ever became a star but that was his role in hollywood; the Saturday matinee cowboy hero.

I have seen a number of Wayne's pre-"Stagecoach" movies and I decided to jot a review of "King of the Pecos" because it struck me as one of the better movies Wayne made during this period. It has an interesting beginning; a ruthless man and his entourage stake out a terriotory of their own in Texas. In the process his henchman kills a settler and his wife but leaves the young boy. Well, guess who comes back incognito as an adult. Some of the action is fairly decent and the role that Wayne plays is a bit more complex in this movie (he has a law degree as well as the ability to shoot the eyes out of a snake). The other characters are somewhat less developed but there are a couple of comic sidekicks that fit the role adequately. There are issues with this movie as there are with all the pre-stardom movies that were made on the cheap. Things don't always make sense.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cleburn's Revenge March 15, 2005
By J. Pace
Format:VHS Tape
John Cleburn and his family were hard working settlers with legal right to prime western property. They happened to be on the property that the thieving Alexander Stiles set his sights upon. When Cleburn did not agree to sell his property, Stiles and his evil cronies just killed Cleburn and his wife and beat their son, leaving him for dead. But, he did not die, and you can imagine that John Jr. grew up with revenge in his eyes. He became a lawyer and a gunman. With those two talents, he eventually manages to ruin the evil Stiles Empire. John Wayne was the only one in the film with much acting ability. His two sidekicks are somewhat funny. As usual, there is a wedding at the end and JW is in it. This is a good film for all to see. Get your kids into the old Wayne films. They are clean and wholesome good fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple Days January 31, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This is a simple good and bad guy movie. John Wayne is the only one on a white horse. He fights evil and wins the heart of the pretty girl. His friends are of the best caliber and stick by him no matter what. I liked it because it reminds me when good always won and life was simple.

5.0 out of 5 stars Young Duke movie November 19, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For John Wayne enthusiasts this is a good movie. There were plenty of big
stars including John Wayne. One could tell the limits of movie production
at the time which was comical to watch, but for anyone that loves John Wayne as much as I do it is a good movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars King of the Pecos March 3, 2005
Format:DVD
I am a John Wayne fan with over 70 of his movies. I agree with the other reviews of the plot of the movie. It is top of the line of John Wayne's grade B Republic movies. The DVD has been fixed & the sound & picture are better than I expected. I especially enjoyed the ending since I am slightly hard of hearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars KING JOHN!!!!! June 1, 2013
By larryj1
Format:DVD
This is for the Artisan release of King of the Pecos. This release looks quite good, is complete, and has no extras. As long as I have this, I see no need for the overpriced Olive edition.
