Based upon historical fact, this film follows the famous range war in which Billy the Kid made his name, but chiefly from the viewpoint of aging cattle baron John Chisum (Wayne in the title role). It's 1878 in New Mexico Territory, and Chisum rides into the local town of Lincoln to meet his niece Sallie (Pamela McMyler) off the stage. His foreman and long-time Good Right Hand, Pepper (Ben Johnson practically stealing the movie--he should have been nominated for Best Supporting Actor), remarks upon the many acquisitions being made by would-be real-estate magnate Lawrence J. Murphy (Tucker in a cheerfully malevolent role), but Chisum isn't looking for trouble. Still, he is inexorably drawn into the escalating situation when lawyer Alex McSween (Andrew Prine), whom Sallie befriended on the journey, finds it impossible to turn a blind eye to Murphy's machinations, and helps stake the idealistic Easterner to a store to run in competition with the one Murphy bought out from under its original owner. Not until his friend and neighbor, Britisher Henry Tunstall (Patric Knowles), is murdered on the road by two deputies of Murphy's hand-picked sheriff (Bruce Cabot), does Chisum's temper finally come unglued, and the story continues through the siege (canonical) of the McSween store by Murphy's forces, the shooting down of McSween in the street, and at last a classic brawl (in an ultimately burning building) between Chisum and Murphy that always reminds me of two old range bulls butting heads.Read more ›

I've always loved John Waynes westerns of the 60's and 70's. Even in older age he was a commanding presence on the screen. Chisum tells the story of the real-life Lincoln County war between John Chisum (wayne) and L.G. Murphy (Forrest Tucker). Chisum is a cattle baron who has settle this area of New Mexico long ago and a well-respected man of the Community. Murphy is the newcomer. A rich man bent on taking over Lincoln County by buying up everything he can and puttin any competitors out of business. This puts him into direct conflict with CHisum. Chisum soon uses his considerable funds to back a store and bank of his own to compete with Murphy.

Chisum is friends with another rich cattleman, a Northeasterner Henry Tunstall. Tunstall just happens to employ a certain young man named Billy Bonney AKA Billy the Kid. Tunstall is a man of God who tries to get Billy to change his lawless ways. Billy finds himself at odds with Chisum due to a romantic interest that forms between he and his niece Sally. EVentually a couple of crooked deputies kill Tunstall claiming he pulled a gun on them. Billy in turn kills the town sheriff setting off an all out war between the various factions leading to a climactic fight between Chisum and Murphy.

The movie does play quite loose with the various facts of the real life Lincoln County war especially with Kid's relation ship with Pat Garrett. The cast was very strong in this film and includes old Wayne co-hort Ben Johnson as "pepper", Chisums friend who mutters his opinion just under his breath all the time. Glen Corbett is the blue steel-eyed Pat Garrett, and Geoffrey Duel is Billy the Kid. Another of the Duke's old pals Bruce Cabot plays the Sheriff, and Chris George is along as the new sadistic Sheriff Nodeen.

Next to Big Jake, this was Wayne's best film in the 1970s. By this time, the Duke was so at home in front of a camera that he could do roles like this in his sleep.

Ben Johnson steals the show as James Pepper, his sidekick who has been with him through thick and thin. Two classic examples are when Chisum prepares to ride down to the river to retrieve his horses from the thieves. He says, "I'm going down there. The rest of you cover me with your long guns." As he starts down, Pepper is right behind him, and as Chisum starts to talk, Pepper responds, "I heard you Mister Chisum, but I ain't the rest of 'em," indicating he wasn't just another hired hand.

Another example is when Pepper says, "Would you like to hear my opinion Mr. John Simpson Chisum?" Wayne replies, "Nope," and Pepper never checks up, "Well, my opinion is. . ." He knew he could speak his peace and get away with it. And, as it turns out, his opinion was right on the money.

Wayne and Johnson had known each other for so long and knew their roles that their chemistry on screen was just plain natural. Several times in the movie, Pepper is mumbling about something, and Chisum is always on his case.

The script gives Wayne plenty of chances to express himself as only he could do through the years. When the head of the horse thieves says, "There must be some mistake," Wayne replies, "You made it." And when the thug asks if he brought gold or silver to buy the horses back, Wayne simply replies, "Just lead."

And don't forget when Lawrence Murphy said he felt like Chisum was threatening him. Wayne promptly decks him and says, "Wrong word! Fact!
