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.

Could it look better? Yes, there's room for improvement but given the limitations of the the. Existing film stock and less than ideal storage, this may be it. The good news is this is the best I've ever seen it on home video -- it's a significant upgrade on the DVD issue. Since it's 2D Blu-ray release the question regarding a 3D release has been answered with unfulfilled rumors. If it happens, It'll be a day one purchase for me. ITM, I'm delighted to have this release. The image and sound quality is very good.
Hondo is a very good, taunt story, well acted with John Wayne in the title role. One of his better roles actually. Geraldine Page, Ward Bond, and James Arness all acquit themselves well in this WarnerColor, 1.85 widescreen film. The film still plays well and holds your interest throughout its length. Highly recommended.
