I've always had a feeling that John Wayne had some kind of health
crisis and deliberately chose The Cowboys to be his swan song film.
When it didn't work out that way, he went on and did some more until
Ever since his Oscar in True Grit, Wayne began playing men of his own
age in his films and a common thread seemed to be imparting values to
the next generations whether they wanted them or not. You can see that
readily in films like Rio Lobo, Big Jake, Chisum, The Train Robbers,
and Cahill, U.s. Marshal. Most especially in The Shootist with Ron
Howard as his pupil.
But in The Cowboys he had a mess of pupils. Wayne's a hardworking
rancher whose hands have deserted him because of a rumored gold strike.
He has to get his cattle to market, so out of desperation he hires a
bunch pubescent and pre-pubescent youngsters from the town.
The trail drive is quite the lesson for these kids. They learn about
life that it is about hard work, responsibility, and keeping your given
word. Wayne gets a second chance at fatherhood, he didn't do such a
good job of it with his own two sons. More like grandfatherhood at his
age, but the kids learn well.
Along as a second role model is Roscoe Lee Browne. Possessor of one of
the greatest speaking voices in the English speaking world, Browne is
the first black man they've ever met. In fact one of the kids uses the
"N" word when first meeting him, out of ignorance more than racism.
Browne sets them straight by example more than preaching.
The oldest two kids, A Martinez and Robert Carradine, have gone on to
some considerable adult careers which they are still enjoying. All the
kids are a winning bunch however.
A couple of the Duke's later westerns like The Train Robbers and Cahill
I found to be flawed. Not so here. Director Mark Rydell keeps this one
going at a good pace and does wonders with his cast of all ages.
