“From the opening montage to the final superb shootout in a cavernous saloon, Siegel's film is a subtle, touching valedictory tribute to both Wayne and the Western in general.” - Geoff Andrew, Time Out

 John Wayne’s final role is the perfect end to a career that spanned six decades. The Duke plays a dying gunfighter who spends his last days looking for a way to die with the least pain and the most dignity. Featuring supporting roles from Hollywood legends Jimmy Stewart and Lauren Bacall, the film is a wonderful elegy to Wayne, Westerns and the American frontier.
