My DVD shelf is sagging with all the John Wayne movies on it, but when this was recently released I had to add it to the others.

When this movie was originally released I was going on 1 year of age. With all the westerns I saw growing up in the 1950s, I don't recall ever seeing this one until a decade ago on TNT's ole 4:00 p.m. daily westerns. I immediately went out and bought the VHS and viewed it many times over. As soon as my wife and I got home with the DVD a few days back we immediately viewed it, too. She is not much for westerns, but her comment after viewing TALL IN THE SADDLE for the first time was that it was a very good movie.

I'm partial to some of the earlier John Wayne movies before he became a 'household name', one in particular: BLUE STEEL. And I rate this movie, TALL IN THE SADDLE, just as good. I would give both BLUE STEEL and TALL IN THE SADDLE more than 5-stars if possible.

TALL IN THE SADDLE was made at a time when directors and actors knew how to make westerns, and this movie just has the feel of a very good one. Its excellence approaches STAGECOACH, an earlier John Wayne movie, that just barely surpasses both BLUE STEEL and TALL IN THE SADDLE.

So, if you like John Wayne westerns or just westerns in general, you can do no better than this one.

And George "Gabby" Hayes is at his best here, too. This is the first time I ever saw Ella Raines in a movie, and what an introduction to her. She is sensational as a gun-totin' woman of the range.

Another item not to go unnoticed in this flick is the appearance of Raymond Hatton in the role a drunken friend of Gabby Hayes.

I was expecting this early Wayne film to be one of those "cliched and routine" stock westerns, so imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered a well written and well performed, solid and unique little western/mystery. Wayne is great in his role and many of his "iconic" mannerisms are evident in this performance.
Co-star Ella Raines is not only very lovely, but she's very convincing as a "tough as nails" cowgirl. She and Wayne have great chemistry together.
The story in this film is airtight and very believable and was truly well written. There are many snappy and memorable bits of dialog delivered with perfection.
Gabby Hayes and Ward Bond once again demonstrate why they became such popular, co-starring character actors. Both of them really shine in their roles and make this film such an enjoyable experience. A special nod to actress Elisabeth Risdon for playing the bitter, conniving old crone so well, and to Audrey Long for making her "sweet and gentle" character memorable instead of boring. (not an easy task)
If you are looking for a fast paced, action packed western with a great story, then definitely check out "Tall in the Saddle." I now know this is one of the best from it's era, and highly recommend seeing it.

This film finally came out on DVD in a John Wayne collection. Yeah! It is a classic in the vein of the Fighting Kentuckian and Dakota alas without Vera Ralston but Ella Raines is great in her own right. Ward Bond is the heavy again and he does it with gusto. Personally, I have always liked this early classic and bought it immediately when it came out on DVD. I grew up on John Wayne and certainly like most of his early movies. If I had my choice between this one and Chisum, I would take this one in a flash. If you liked Angel and the Badman, you will like this one.

I love the chemistry between the Duke and George "Gabby" Hayes. I noticed it while watching the "B" westerns of The Duke's early movie career. Paul Fix wrote the screen play and is also credited for giving John Wayne his famous walk. In this movie, The Duke is a Man's man. He had that great charisma that is lacking in so many "stars" today. The story is simple and yet, it's a good one. the classic format of good vs. evil and no one could pull it off better than John Wayne! I also enjoyed watching Ward Bond play the corrupt judge. In my opinion; He is one of the greatest character actors in movie history. He and John wayne played so well off of each other. Even though the movie isn't considered a classic, It is well worth watching and it is also very much worth owning. Trust me; this is one for your collection!

He's rough. He's tough. He's pleasantly intimidating to anyone wishing a confrontation. Big John is coming.

"Stagecoach" may have made him a star but this one personified the walk, the talk, and the legend.

Finally, on DVD, restored beautifully in mint black and white with sound to match.

This is Mr. Wayne in his prime with a terrific supporting cast. Gabby Hayes and Raymond Hatton, the original oldtimers and sidekicks are hilarious. Paul Fix, veteran actor best known from "The Rifleman", as the roustabout bad guy. Ward Bond in one of many appearances in Wayne films. The lovely Ella Raines who fits her tomboy role like a glove. And after 50 years it holds up. No question about it.

If you're a John Wayne fan this is a must see.

The really great thing about this film is that Wayne, while whipping the bad guys and getting the girl, never shoots his gun. It's all in the "strut and stare".

Magnificent.
