Bury those quitters!

Tom Dunson is a self made cattle baron, he will do what ever it takes to protect the life he has made for himself. The constant fall in the value of livestock means that Tom, and his adopted son Matthew, must drive the gathered herd through the perilous Chisholm Trail, and then hope to get good value for the beef. With their assembled group of hands they head off North, but many problems will come their way, not least, a fallout due to Dunson’s tyrannical ways, meaning there could well be mutiny on the range.

Without a shadow of doubt, Red River is one of the greatest Westerns ever made, boasting incredible performances from the cast, directed with sumptuous skill by Howard Hawks and photographed as good as any film in the genre. Based on the novel The Chisholm Trail written by Borden Chase (also co writing duties for the film), Red River is a sweeping spectacle that doesn’t have a frame that’s wasted. Hawks (this his first Western) frames his wonderfully vivid characters in lush expansive landscapes, fleshing them out amongst the constant stream of drama and action. Though Chase would be annoyed at the changes Hawks made to the story, he surely would have marvelled at the finished product, with Harlan’s photography in and around the Arizona’s locales capturing a cowboys terrain expertly, while Dimitri Tiomkin’s score stirs the blood and pumps the viewer with Cowboy adrenaline.

If anyone doubts John Wayne as an actor of note then they need look no further than his performance here as Dunson. Tough and durable in essence the character is for sure, but Wayne manages to fuse those traits with a believable earthy determination that layers the character perfectly. With Wayne all the way, matching him stride for stride is Montgomery Clift as Matthew Garth, sensitive without being overly so, it’s the perfect foil to Wayne’s machismo barnstorming. Walter Brennan and John Ireland also shine bright in support, while a special mention has to go to a wonderful turn from Joanne Dru as Tess Millay, for Howard Hawks’ CV shows a ream of strong female characters, and here Dru firmly puts herself in amongst the best of them – check out her first appearance alongside Clift, it’s precious.

Red River made a fortune upon its release, it was revered by the critics back then, and it’s still being revered today. Rightly so, because it is quite simply magic cinema, a case where everything comes together perfectly, it’s in short, a film that even none Western fans should be able to marvel at as entertainment. Or? at the very least give credit to the Tech accomplishments on offer. 10/10

Review By: John Chard

Perhaps not a film you’d expect to work given the stars, but John Wayne and Monty Clift do manage to convey a sense of a repectful, but loving relationship – something I don’t recall ever seeing before (or since) in a Wayne film towards another man. Hawks takes us on a dirty, unrelenting cattle drive and we can almost feel the strains and tension build as the younger man rails against the almost brutal control of his father-figure. Walter Brennan, as ever, is superb but in this has a little more nuanced a role treading a fine line between his old friend and their younger protégé. The photography really does demonstrate just how tough the whole enterprise would have been for the real cattle drivers and the denouement is superbly staged. A truly epic example of the Western genre that is as good as it gets.
Review By: CinemaSerf
A film which is spectacle at its best , although spectacle is by no means all of it…
From 1939 to 1948, two major Westerns done with taste and skill and with an eye to beauty could be mentioned: John Ford’s “Stagecoach,” and Howard Hawks’ “Red River.”

“Red River” is a great adventure Western considered as the very best among all Westerns… But could we compared it to Ford’s splendidly filmed “Wagon Master”? John Ford maintains his shooting eye at a certain distance while Howard Hawks keeps it nearby… But both are skilled directors of a bunch of great movies

Ford is closer to Western movies, and Hawks to other genre… Ford treats his Western characters as people behave… Hawks displays it in vivid adventure… In “Red River,” “Rio Bravo,” and “The Big Sky” Howard Hawks is far from the magnitude of Ford’s “The Searchers.” Under Ford’s instruction, John Wayne is fluent and moderate, refined in conduct and manners as in “The Quiet Man.” With Hawks, Wayne’s character prevails differential tendency toward passion and fury…

It is soon evident that the cattle boss is tough to the point of obsession It could be argued that only men of this spirit could have handled and survived the first pioneering cattle drives One of the drovers (John Ireland) wants to make for Abilene but gets no change out of Wayne When the cattle stampede Wayne goes to ‘gun-whip’ one of the hands, Clift intervenes It was then evident that Wayne was going to drive his men just as hard as he intends to drive the cattle

“Red River” is a Western just as much concerned with human relationships and their tensions as with spectacle and action—a hallmark of Hawks’ films and this element is introduced when the pair meet up with a boy leading a cow The boy confirms the wagon-train massacre, and the boy and the cow from then on are included in the partnership This is not only a key-point of the narrative but also a highly symbolic moment

For some years Garfield was the only screen rebel… But in Clift’s appearance in “Red River,” another rebel was born In “Red River,” Clift plays the adopted son who opposes his father’s domineering attitudes and behavior towards himself and also towards the cowhands who work for them on the drive to market The struggle between father and adopted son, compels delighted interest… Dunson’s unfeeling hardhearted style remembers us Captain Bligh in “Mutiny on the Bounty.” In the beginning of the film we had admiration for Wayne’s persona… We concluded finding him unfriendly, unconscious, unacceptable and faulty… Clift wins our sympathy!

Clift was the withdrawn, introverted man who quietly maintains his integrity as he resists all pressures These qualities were summed up in the words of Private Prewitt in “From Here to Eternity” probably Clift’s finest rebel role!

“Red River” will remain a film with a unique flavor It has, and will continue to have, its own special niche among honored Westerns

With two Academy Award Nomination for Writing, splendid music score by Dmitri Tomkin and excellent acting including the supporting cast, the film had all the concepts of Howard Hawks’ quality: vigor in action, reality as opposed to emotions and a faculty of scale…
