Gave this a view last night. Like all of Ford's westerns it hasn't aged very well but it is a cut above the rest for me. Wayne was thankfully kept on the sidelines as Stewart lights up the screen.
Marvin is fun as the sadistic Valance. Van Cleef is sadly typecast (per usual for all of his films before 1965) as the menacing brute and does little else but look mean.

TMTSLV is a good picture with a tight storyline (unlike Ford's "Searchers" which rambles a lot) and has a nice twist at the end.

I love this movie. Definitely my all-time favorite AW.

This features one of the sickest villains in film history, LIBERTY VALANCE!!!!  Evil

Stewart and Wayne are at their best here.

It's up there with John Fords best for sure. It's a fantastic movie, and the cast is incredible. I love the little ending twist as well.

"That's my steak, pilgrim."

Quite possibly the best thing John Wayne ever said.


I really need to see this film again.

Yeah, that was my favorite scene in the movie, especially when James Stewart when crazy and picked up the steak. I love his acting, really puts aside his "Nice guy" persona. What film did he do where he went on a death hunt?

Well, if you're talking about a western, you're probably thinking of one of the Stewart/Anthony Mann collaborations (of which I've only seen Winchester '73, and badly want to see the others).

This is one of the few movies where I watched it... and then again the next day.

I don't think it's that one...Martin Scorsese mentioned it in his talk about American Westerns....

"Two Rode Together"? "The Naked Spur"? "Bend of the River"?

And I'm glad I'm not the only who gets hungry watching this movie. . .  Grin

The Naked Spur! Yeah that's the one.

Yeah, something about westerns just makes me want to eat, especially The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

Speaking of westerns that make you want to eat. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly comes to mind first when I think of this. The scene where Van Cleef is introduced when he sits down at the table and starts eating before any words spoken. hahaha classic scene.

Yeah that was a great scene, a great way to introduce the villian. That movie also made me hungry.

Watched this last night for the first time and i have to say it's one of John Wayne's and John Ford's best films.
Every character was colourful, great dialogue and beautifully photographed in bw.
One of my favourite AW.
