Editorial Reviews

The first film released by Republic Pictures stars John Wayne as a two-fisted pistol-packing cowboy who vows to avenge the death of his parents at the hands of cattle rustlers. A legend was born as America discovered a new star unlike anyone had seen before or since. While searching for the brother he has been separated from since childhood he fights to bring law and order to the Wild West as he leads a band of vigilantes bent on rounding up gangs of outlaws. The great cast includes Jim Farley as a cattle baron, Sheila Bromley as his daughter, Jack Curtis as Ballard, the outlaw leader and Frank McGlynn, Jr. as Wayne's younger brother, now one of Ballard's top guns. Robert N. Bradbury (The Star Packer) directed this action-packed western pitting brother vs. brother and good vs. evil.

Customer Reviews

And Westward Ho is a nice look at a younger Wayne...
Mikal C. Johnson
I love old westerns, anything with John Wayne in it I'll watch, even the ones at the start of his carrier.
Royce Gideon
Like to watch these type movies, with good morals given for the most part.

Newborn Republic Pictures utilizes the solid directoral ability of Robert Bradbury, and the presence of John Wayne along with Yakima Canutt and his troupe of stuntriders to produce this strongly scripted film of 1860s vigilante efforts to rid the Far West of outlaw bands that were involved in widespread robbery and cattle rustling. Bradbury, whose skill with Westerns dates back to the early silent period, directs and edits with a solid awareness of suspense, building his typically short scenes with sparse and, at times, stilted dialogue and an eye for proper cast placement which makes excellent use of defined personalities such as Wayne, Frank McGlynn Jr., and Glenn Strange, and gives particular value to the hard-riding stunt performers, who are splendid throughout this well-made (and musical) adventure filmed in California's Owens Valley, at the base of the Sierra Nevada.

The older surviving brother of a wagon train ambush, seeks revenge on the leader of the gang responsible for the murder of his parents and the kidnapping of his younger brother. Years later, he is the leader of a group of 'vigilantes' who oppose lawlessness and unknowingly confronts his 'long-loss-brother' who has since learned the tricks-of-the-trade from the outlaws.

These were the movies that my father, and grandfather tell me that they saw in the movies for .5 cents or so. Yet again John Wayne has not let me down. Lots of shooting, and plenty of action, John Wayne, without any argument is by far the best cowboy there was. Get this movie Wayne fans you will love it!

Westward Ho is a nice little western. The story is entertaining and the final act holds up pretty well for an old 1935 Western. The action is a little weak, it is almost all filmed in wide shots. It's interesting seeing how stuntwork and chase scenes and shootouts were all figuring themselves out back in the 30's. John Wayne is awesome, he is such an icon. John Wayne would strike gold with Stagecoach eventually, an old Western from 1939 that would perfect how to shoot, edit, and score an action packed Western with story and heart as well. Therefore, if you want to see the baby steps leading up to that Western masterpiece, start here!

John Wayne even sings (dubbed) in this and its hilarious.

Unfortunately, Olive Films gives you no bonus features and charges way too much for a 60 minute blu ray. Literally, it's usually around $11-$19 for these old John Wayne westerns. Mine was $12. I want to own these all, but they are far to expensive. The film looks quite good too for a '35 Western.

Solution?: Put multiple films on one disc or give us booklets and bonus features or even trailers for goodness sakes. Otherwise, buy only for the most hardcore fan of classic westerns

Westward Ho! (Robert N. Bradbury, 1935)

One of John Wayne's better Robert Bradbury-directed two-reelers for Lone Star Pictures, and the first under the Republic banner, Westward Ho! Pits brother against brother in a classic (and yes, you can read that as a euphemism for "derivative") tale of mistaken identity and revenge. Wayne plays John Wyatt, who as a child (an early role for child star Bradley Metcalfe) watched a gang of bandits kill his parents and kidnap his brother. Fast-forward a decade and change and Wyatt is now the head of the Singing Riders, a vigilante group who are dedicated to protecting the safety of the wagon trains from bandits like those who preyed on Wyatt's family. Wyatt, of course, is always on the lookout for that particular bunch, headed up by the nefarious Ballard (character actor Jack Curtis, who turned in uncredited roles in such classics as Citizen Kane, My Darling Clementine, and White Fang). When he finds Ballard's gang, one of its younger members looks familiar...it's standard two-dimensional stuff, where the good guys are pure as spring water and the bad guys are the worst things EVER, though screenwriters Robert Emmett Tansey and Lindsley Parsons do stir things up a little with the whole kidnapped-brother angle (Wyatt, of course, has to show his younger brother, played as an adult by Frank McGlynn Jr., who died under mysterious circumstances in 1939 just as his career was taking off, the error of his ways). But it's pretty darned enjoyable, probably the best pre-Stagecoach John Wayne flick I've seen so far. ***

John Wayne in Westward Ho is good in this one.

Westward Ho had me wondering when the two brothers would finally meet but I never expected that. The Fighting Kentuckian was a classic "so you think you are better than me." movie, and I loved it

The customers at our library are enjoying these on DVD. After all, this is a western town where westerns are very popular.
