One of my favorite westens!

The set up or lead in to the action is rather long by contemporary standards, but still an interesting film.

This is a lesser version of THE SEARCHERS, which is a masterpiece in just about anybody's canon, but TWO RODE TOGETHER still achieves greatness because every element that plays to the gallery is overcome, or extended, with a surprise. We do not completely know these characters, and they do not completely know themselves, complexities that always make profundity possible in the right hands. It is a simple story that starts out as a comedy and flips over almost suddenly into a drama, and one that becomes increasingly complicated. A marshall kept in fine clothes and money by a madam is recruited by an army officer to go on a mission in which white children taken by the Commanches will be brought back, if found.

The sheer heat, nuance, and humor of James Stewart and Richard Widmark would make any movie great. They are equally at ease when the film calls for them to be funny or meretricious or moral, hard-nosed or disgusted, out only for themselves and some fun or pulled in by the charms of a virgin or woman who has lived as the wife of a Commanche. That second woman is as essential as the acting of Stewart and Widmark because her experience makes obvious Ford's vision of sexual paranoia. That paranoid contempt results in the defining of a woman as a pariah even if she has been forced to live with Indians. She must face this hostility when she returns to her Christian origins, which are too often cold and unforgiving of any frailties, such as the normal human response to overwhelming power, which is almost always submission when the choice is to live or be killed. That is why one of white women who has lived with the Commanches for years refuses to go back. She knows the general rejection will be nearly unbearable. This is Ford's disappointment with how Christianity has been interpreted.

It may seem crazy to disagree with a director's own assessment of a film but I like John Ford's "Two Rode Together" a great deal. Ford was in his mid-sixties and slipping when he made this film and some of the plot inconsistencies seem to have escaped him entirely. But the interplay between Stewart and Widmark is wonderful; this was the last great performance of Stewart's career, the best American actor who ever stepped in front of a camera. Francois Truffaut reportedly was influenced by their work when he put together his film "Jules and Jim." I also like the flat-out frankness in dealing with the Indian captive problem on the frontier, which was no little dilema at the time.

"Two Rode Together" is the only James Stewart Western not to reach the American public on DVD. It is endearing. The director (John Ford) reportedly didn't like it, which isn't that odd given Ford's souring on the Western as an idiom. It is, however, a gem in every way. The acting is exemplary, with the unbroken talk between Steward and Widmark by the stream being remarkable. The characters and crisp and engaging: John McIntyre, Shirlely Jones, Linda Crystal, Andy Divine, and Ken Curtis support Stewart and Widmark. There is comic relief. There are thoughtful plot turns and conflicted characters. The underlying theme, that good deeds are often fraught with unanticipated and tragic consequences, was especially apt given the films timing (the nation was enmeshed in the Vietnam War). The film centers on two very different men: one (Stewart's character) a hardened Marshall, who is cynical and a "kept man". The other is a idealistic cavalry officer (Whitmark), who is repulsed by Stewart at times but who is bound to do his duty. They are sent to deal with Comanche Indians (Texas) holding white captives. The Indians have factions: one group recognizes the need to make a deal, and the other are a more militant brand of Comanche who believe magic talismans can ward off bullets. The pragmatists verses the true-believers is an interesting take. The result is that several captives are repatriated, with plot-twist consequences. One reason for the poor reputation of the film may be the unflattering depiction of the Indians. We're in an era in which there is discomfort showing them as something less than woodland poets. I note that the Anglos don't exactly shine, either. Good and bad are on both sides of the deal, hence a sense of realism. This is an engaging, thought-provoking film that exceeds The Searchers in my estimation. This is set in Texas, it is excellent even if the director soured on making Westerns.

So its not oscar winning material! This movie is great for watching a trio of old Hollywood pros having a good time. Jimmy Stewart plays against type as a down and out lawman who finds a reason to change. Richard Widmark (my all time favorite actor) is great as usual as a soldier who lives his values and John Ford directs the cast with style. Enjoy!

I enjoyed this film very much. The relationships between the characters are very interesting. There are some very funny moments and some edge of the seat action. I am disappointed I cannot locate a DVD of this movie. I used to have the VHS version but when I went to dvd's I got rid of it, assuming I would be able to get a copy on dvd. I like most of the movies from that era because there were enjoyable. I didn't have to think deep thoughts, crawl under the chair because I was scared, or hide my face with embarrassment because of the nudity and/or language.
