Description
Behind the camera? John Ford, a director whose name is synonymous with "Westerns." Gathered in front of it? An ideal cast ? James Stewart, John Wayne, Vera Miles and Lee Marvin. Now presented on two discs, with all-new special features, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance rides into town as classic entry in the Paramount Centennial Collection. Director Ford brings us to the lawless frontier village of Shinbone, a town plagued by a larger-than-life nemesis, Liberty Valance (Marvin). Stewart plays the bungling but charming big-city lawyer determined to rid Shinbone of Valance, and he finds that he has an unlikely ally -- in the form of a rugged, local rancher (Wayne). The two men also share the same love interest (Miles). But when the final showdown becomes inevitable, one of the two will attempt to get the gunman - but the other one will wind up getting the gal.

    Comments about this product:

    This is atypical western of 1962, starring John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart. Costarring Vera Miles, Lee Marvin, Edmond O'Brien, Andy Devine and Ken Murray. Directed by John Ford; but when he puts a ranch-hand in denim overalls like a cotton-picker...poor choice.

    This is an essential of westerns. I am not a John Wayne fan, but this is one to watch! Besides that Jimmy Stewart stole the movie.

    Robbed and badly beaten by Lee, Jimmy is penniless. He works as a cafe dish-washer/waiter. Plus he starts a school for those who can not read, like Vera. Jimmy gets the reputation of "the man who shot Liberty Valance" (Lee). Jimmy gets elected to represent Shinbone at the next election.

    To add comedy, Andy is the sheriff, scared stiff of Lee (Liberty Valance) and the worst beggar of charity. Also, Edmond is the publisher of the local newspaper and the town imbiber, he too gets badly beaten up by Lee (Liberty Valance).

    After the death of John, the new editor of the Shinbone Star says "This is the west, sir. When the the legend becomes fact, print the legend." What did he mean?

    You have to watch to find out the truth. This is a rare western, when the characters are not what they seem to be.

          This is, in my opinion, John Ford's final masterpiece and provided John Wayne with one of his best and most iconic roles. Source of the quote, "When the legend becomes fact, print the legend," which the film eloquently illustrates.

            John Wayne is a great actor in this movie. He has a sensative side for a cowboy. I dont care for westerns, but I liked this one!
