Wagon Master is a good outdoor action film, done in the best John Ford manner. That means careful character development and movement, spiced with high spots of action, good drama and leavening comedy moments
I don't necessarily like westerns, but this is an exception to the rule. It's good, real good! We can't believe it was made in 1969. It looks like a movie made recently. You can't go wrong with this action movie.
Junior Bonner, based on an excellent original screenplay by Jeb Rosebrook, is Peckinpah in the benignly comic mood that, I suspect, is much more the natural fashion of this fine director than is the gross, intellectualized mayhem.
