Movie Reviews

Good action...great transfer!
Carolyn Falconer | Upstate, NY | 05/29/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"So far, the Republic films of John Wayne that have made it's way onto DVD have been hit or miss, when it comes to how nicely they get transferred. Some, like "The Fighting Kentuckian" and "The Quiet Man" appear to be transferred from a poor VHS source. Others, like "Wake Of The Red Witch" or "King Of The Pecos" look to come from the original film elements. So, needless to say, I was wondering how "Three Faces West" would look, when it showed up on my doorstep. I'm happy to say it looks great! It has some age-related problems, like a few "pops" and "ticks" in the soundtrack, but that's to be excused...seeing as a film like this would never get the full restoration process.As for the film itself, it's a quick moving take on the dust bowl farmers of the 1930s, and their trek to a new land in Oregon. Many compare this film (unfairly) to John Ford's "The Grapes Of Wrath", seeing as both deal with the same subject matter. While John Ford's film was made to make a statement about the plight of the mid-western farmers, this was made to be mostly just an 80 minute action film for John Wayne. And for that purpose, it succeeds! Pick this one up, you won't be disappointed...."
The story line is pretty good for an older John Wanyne flix

"Three Faces West is not Wayne's best movie,but it is worth watching. It takes place in Oklahoma right before the great depression. A refuge doctor and daughter come to a desperate town in hopes of finding a new life."
An unusual outing for Wayne

"This is not a well known film but it is one that I recommend to the John Wayne film buff. Also, those who think Wayne was just another cowboy star should watch this. It is a snapshot into the mid 1930's. The Dust Bowl is in evidence as well as refugees from the Nazis in Europe. Wayne is the leader of a town that takes in a medical doctor who has fled Europe. The conditions in the Dust Bowl makes the population of the town refugees as they pull up stakes and head to Oregon. Add in subplots of romance with the doctor's daughter and interference from a Nazi former boyfriend and you get the idea."

"I thought the movie was an insight into the time. It was made either prewar or early world war II and showed good versus evil. I like movies that show a clear difference between right and wrong and this one did just that."
