"The Duke" is King...Of The Pecos....
L. Shirley | fountain valley, ca United States | 02/19/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This review refers to the Artisan DVD of "King Of The Pecos"(John Wayne Collection)...

Alexander Stiles is a land grubbing, cattle rustling,water hording, lily livered murderin' thief. Nobody and nothin' will get in the way of the empire he is building for himself in Old New Mexico. He even goes as far as to have a hard working husband and wife shot down in cold blood in front of their own child. BIG mistake...little did Stiles realize then that this little kid would grow up to be The Duke..John Wayne!

Yesiree Bob..little John Clayborn comes back to town all grown up and with a law degree to boot. Now known as John Clay he's on a mission to help the townspeople that have all been swindled by the evil Stiles. The long arm of the law is no match for Stiles' murderin' ways though, and lucky for us, The Duke not only has a law degree but is a crack shot with a six-shooter as well! So let the range wars begin! Who will be the last man standing?...well..You know....

At just under an hour,"King Of The Pecos" is the kind of great old fashioned shoot-em-up that all the newer westerns pay homage to. Wayne is marvelous as the ultimate good guy who comes riding in on his white horse to save the day..and you know..where our guy is concerned there is even a little romance as well!

Wonderfully directed by Joseph Kane("Flame of the Barbary Coast"), with some fabulous black and white western cinematography, the film also stars Muriel Evans, Cy Kendall and Jack Clifford.

A great big nod to Artsian, for giving us a beautiful transfer of the 1936 film. The picture in the original full screen is clear and crisp. The sound is remasterd in DD2.0(mono). The dialouge is clear and distinct, as is all the wonderful sounds of the horses and gunfire. I am truly impressed by how good it looks and sounds.

Five stars for being a wonderful piece of cinematic history to add to your John Wayne collection!

Saddle up and enjoy....Laurie

Simple Days
Ralph Burgess | Franklin, GA | 01/31/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a simple good and bad guy movie. John Wayne is the only one on a white horse. He fights evil and wins the heart of the pretty girl. His friends are of the best caliber and stick by him no matter what. I liked it because it reminds me when good always won and life was simple."
Cleburn's Revenge
J. Pace | Tuscumbia, AL United States | 03/15/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"John Cleburn and his family were hard working settlers with legal right to prime western property. They happened to be on the property that the thieving Alexander Stiles set his sights upon. When Cleburn did not agree to sell his property, Stiles and his evil cronies just killed Cleburn and his wife and beat their son, leaving him for dead. But, he did not die, and you can imagine that John Jr. grew up with revenge in his eyes. He became a lawyer and a gunman. With those two talents, he eventually manages to ruin the evil Stiles Empire. John Wayne was the only one in the film with much acting ability. His two sidekicks are somewhat funny. As usual, there is a wedding at the end and JW is in it. This is a good film for all to see. Get your kids into the old Wayne films. They are clean and wholesome good fun."
