About this item
No matter what genre he worked in, Howard Hawks ("His GirlFriday") played by his own rules, and never was this more evident than in his first western, the rowdy and whip-smart"Red River".In it, John Wayne ("Stagecoach") found one of his greatest roles as an embittered, tyrannical Texas rancher whose tensions with his independent-minded adopted son, played by Montgomery Clift ("From Here to Eternity") in a breakout performance, reach epic proportions during a cattle drive to Missouri, which is based on a real-life late nineteenth-century expedition. Yet Hawks is less interested in historical accuracy than in tweaking the codes of masculinity that propel the myths of the American West. The unerringly macho Wayne and the neurotic, boyish Clift make for an improbably perfect pair, held aloft by a quick-witted, multilayered screenplay and Hawks's formidable direction.
