When his grandson (played by real-life son Ethan Wayne) is kidnapped by scurrilous baddie Richard Boone, Big Jake (John Wayne) sets out to deliver the $1 million ransom. On the off-chance that there'll be gunplay, Jake brings along his sons Patrick Wayne and Chris Mitchum. Maureen O'Hara plays Jake's estranged wife and Bruce Cabot provides comedy relief as a scraggly Indian Scout. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A second rate Western, more interesting for its biographical elements, the film co-stars Wayne's own son as well as sons of Robert Mitchum and other friends, all getting the usual lessons in macho morality."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Rowdy shootem' up has Duke in boot-stridin' form."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Wayne gets little help from anyone else but Boone and can't pull off such a slight story line by his lonesome."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Very enjoyable, underrated western."
