5-0 out of 5 stars The Complete Films ofJohn Wayne
One of the best books on John Wayne films that I have ever
seen. I already own a softback copy and intend on purchasing
a hardback copy. I would recommend this to any serious John
Wayne Collector. It gives you a complete history of all the
films with a list of actors and a short bio of the film with
some pictures.

1-0 out of 5 stars Below-average "Films of . . ." book
Aside from the illustrations, I don't find much to recommend this book.There are no commentaries about the making of Wayne's films, no discussion of Wayne's working methods, no critical analysis, and nothing about thefilms' financial impact in the theaters.No character names are includedin the cast lists, so they are basically useless in finding out who playedwho.Much of the information is inacturate.In the introduction theauthors state that in his early days Wayne appeared in several Ham Hamiltoncomedies, but no such films appear in the main body of the book (in fact,I've never heard of a screen comedian named Ham Hamilton, although therewas an animator by that name working for Walt Disney at the time).Theplot synopis to many of the films are incorrect, listing wrong characternames and describing incidents that don't happen in the film.And I'mstill trying to figure out why Ward Bond is listed twice in the cast listof DAKOTA.There's a really great blooper in the write-up to CHISUM: Theauthors state that the true-life characters of Pat Garrett and Billy theKid are included in the story and that Garrett is gunned down by Billy! Say what? (No, this doesn't actually occur in the film.)Oh, yes, ifthis book is the "complete" films of John Wayne, then why isn'tCOLLEGE COACH (1933) included?

My final verdict: Skip this book and seekout a copy of Allen Eyles' far superior (and, unfortunately, nowout-of-print) book JOHN WAYNE AND THE MOVIES (re-issued as simply JOHNWAYNE).

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book plenty of information
If you are looking for John Wayne films this is the book to have. It tells what the film is about, who also starred in and what year it was made. It also has plenty of photos to help you recognize what movie it is and if itis the one you are looking for. The book has some interesting facts aboutsome of the movies. ... Read more

Editorial Review

John Ford's 1948 classic stars John Wayne as a Cavalry officer used to doing things a certain way out West at Fort Apache. Along comes a rigid, new commanding officer (Henry Fonda) who insists that everything on his watch be done by the book, including dealings with local Indians. The results are mixed: greater discipline at the fort, but increased hostilities with the natives. Ford deliberately leaves judgments about the wisdom of these changes ambiguous, but he also allows plenty of room in this wonderful film for the fullness of life among the soldiers and their families--community rituals, new romances--to blossom. Fonda, in an unusual role for him, is stern and formal as the new man in charge; Wayne is heroic as the rebellious second; Victor McLaglen provides comic relief; and Ward Bond is a paragon of sturdy and sentimental masculinity. All of this is set against the magnificent, poetic topography of Monument Valley. This is easily one of the greatest of American films. --Tom Keogh ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars "I am not a martinet."
This is the first in John Ford's cavalry trilogy. Henry Fonda plays an abrasive, spit-and-poliah officer, who needs to do things by the books, especially when dealing with the Indians. He's pitted against the more "human" John Wayne. Because of his refusal to bend, the outfit is caught in an Indian attack, and Fonda goes down fighting. His character is fairly well developed, and he is made "heroic" because of his willingness to live and die by what he thought was right: a soldier's code of conduct. Like all John Ford westerns, this picture is a mixture of action, corn, and scenery (beautiful Monument Valley) - and takes some getting used to. I admit to not being a big fan of his stuff. The sequel (SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON) is considered by many to be better, but I like this one better. Worth a watch.

5-0 out of 5 stars Action Packed: John Ford's Disguised Take On Custer
John Ford Western's are always great because of the realism of the sets usually filmed on location and because John Ford's personal and factural interest in Western History. This movie is unique in that this movie is suppose to be John Ford's view of Custer and the Little Bighorn that is slyly disguised by placing the story in the southwest against the Apache instead of the Sioux (see the Custer Reader by Paul Hutton). Apparently, Ford sympathized more with Custer's regimental nemesis at the Little Bighorn Captain Benteen and Ford thought of Custer as an egotistical, glory seeking, martinet. Thus, you have your roles set as Henry Fonda plays a despotic Colonel Thursday as John Ford's Custer and Wayne plays the Benteen role as Captain York. The conflict between them adds to the overall tension of the movie as Thursday chronically makes poor decisions based on his lack of respect for the Apache as Wayne dutifully tries to advise him of their capabilities. Just like the real Custer and Benteen dispute, the two nearly come to a duel or blows as the grand finale erupts into a Custer like debacle as York defends the supply train as Benteen did with Reno at the LBH. At the very end, the surviving York pulls back from making a critical assessment of his commander, it seems that at the end, Ford pulled back from too much controversy in bashing the Custer legacy. But nevertheless, this is an exciting, realistic film. The only draw back is grown up Shirley Temple seeems too young for the romantic lead and the Custer (Thursday) and Benteen (York) similarity is much more complex historically and represents Ford's opinion. As always, there is a touch of timely humor in Ford's realistic story of the west.

5-0 out of 5 stars Intelligent Landmark Western Of True Classic Status
The western genre has been probably one of the most frequently used in Hollywood filmmaking , at least until fairly recent times. In every decade there have been countless mediocre efforts and a few that have come down to us as true classics of the genre, whether it be for their great action sequences, good character studies or spectacular scenery. John Ford's 1948 "Fort Apache" is I believe one that belongs in the later category boasting excellence in all the three areas mentioned. The first installment in Ford's deservedly classic cavalry trilogy "Fort Apache", is strong on interesting character studies while never sacrificing the exciting action element which makes for a thrilling western. The teaming of veterans John Wayne and Henry Fonda in characters that have personalites that are bound to collide makes for much of the fine dramatic meat of this story. The film is also a standout in this genre for presenting a sympathetic and dignified image of the Indian races depicted in the story which helps give the film a certain uniqueness for western efforts from this period in Hollywood history.

The conflict element central to this entire story is introduced very quickly when we see Col. Owen Thursday (Henry Fonda), reluctantly arriving at Fort Apache to take up command of this outpost against his will. He has with him his young daughter Philadelphia (Shirley Temple), and almost before he is settled into his new home he comes into opposition with the local Captain York (John Wayne). York has extensive knowledge of the region and by his fairness and respectful dealings has earned the trust of the Indian population on the reservation however he immediately clashes with the unbending and unrealistic views that Col. Thursday has about outpost discipline and more importantly in the handling of the native population. Good men like Capt. Collingwood (George O'Brien), find themselves relieved of their formerly held posts and Col. Thursday is soon even in conflict with his daughter when she begins a romance with the dashing young 2nd Lt. Michael O'Rourke (John Agar), a man who in Col. Thursday's belief is way below her social station in life. The simmering conflicts at the fort reach a head when it is learnt that the local Indian population have moved out of their agreed reservation and after Capt. York meets with the Indian leader Cochise (Miguel Inclan), and agrees to further peaceful talks, he finds his own reputation on the line when Col. Thursday refuses to be dictated to by the Indians and is prepared to use force if necessary to get them back on the reservation. When an agreement can't be reached even after the real reason why the Indians left the reservation is discoveredrevealing vast exploitation of the native population by greedy men at the outpost store Col. Thursday, used to military glory sees his opportunity for further praise in his uncompromising handling of the Indians who he regards simply as rebels despite their wish for peace. Insulting the Indian leaders despite their efforts to stay within the agreed treaty it then seems that war is inevitable. Disaster strikes when however when refusing Capt. York's sound advice on battle strategies in this region Col. Thursday leads a whole battalion into a terrible ambush which sees all of the men killed with he also becoming a victim of his own inability to understand both the Indians and his own men.

Westerns as a rule are not renowned for their strong character studies or examinations of Indian and white men's belief about living together however John Ford has achieved that with this excellent examination of all the conflicting attitudes that made up life in the early west frontier. The performances delivered by both Henry Fonda and John Wayne are among their best with Fonda excelling as the type of leader we love to hate, a man driven by his past achievements who is determined to follow those despite what others say. John Wayne working with his favourite director here again delivers a very appealing performance as the decent Captain who finds all his years of experience in warfare and importantly in developing the trust of the Indians coming to naught in the face of Capt. York's rigid set of beliefs. Both men square off against each other in a highly effective manner and add the main dramatic element to the story giving "Fort Apache", alot of its memorable quality. The supporting players are also first rate. "Fort Apache", provides us with a glimpse of the teenage Shirley Temple long after her reign as Hollywood's greatest child star and she provides the typical romantic element here teaming with real life future husband John Agar in his film debut. Pedro Armendariz, Victor McLaglen and especially Ward Bond in his touching performance as Sgt. Maj. O'Rourke all add their expertise to their individual scenes and help make "Fort Apache", a story rich with solid large and small characterisations. Of course being a John Ford western the visuals are of the greatest importance and Ford's favourite location of Monument Valley is well utilised in the story as a magnificent backdrop to the proceedings. The films many great action sequences that display some excellent stunt work also go a long way towards earning this film its classic status with the famous shoot out at the climax where Col. Thursday and his men perish being rarely equalled for excitment and tragedy.

Even if you are not a great western fan there is much to enjoy in "Fort Apache". The main characters are not cardboard cut outs and the main conflicts in the story between firstly the characters played by Henry Fonda and John Wayne and in the wider one between the white men and the Indians are not provided with easy solutions and always try to show both sides of the conflict. It is this lack of everything being depicted as black and white as is so often seen in westerns that makes "Fort Apache", such interesting viewing and which deservedly earns it the accolade of being a great classic of this genre, enjoy!

4-0 out of 5 stars A handsome, well-done magazine that I won't read again
This is a good-looking magazine that always arrives on time and that never skimps on content. But I'm letting my subscription--which I bought as a way to encounter a distinct culture other than my own--lapse because there's just too much politics here. That is, you CAN say negative, but honest, things about John Wayne and other conservative icons, but not if your ideology blinkers you.

Strongly recommended for conservative cowboys, then, not for other political points of view.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for almost everyone.
This well-written magazine gives readers a realistic view of cowboys and cowgirls today, whether they are ranch owners, ranch hands, or rodeo athletes.The photography is first class.If you have any interest in cowboys and cowgirls, a western lifestyle, or just knowing how people live and react who enjoy this way of living, you will enjoy this magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars The American Cowboy!!!!
I like this magazine on The American Cowboy & it must be good.

I like the picture on the cover of the cowboy on a horse and in the grass.

The National Finals Rodeo photos are beautifrul.

This is so great!

I loved this magazine!!!!!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This has got to be one of my favorite magazines
I love this magazine. I'm a teenage rider and I find (most of) the articles very informative and helpful. I really like Cindy Hale's Life With Horses colum and I always enjoy Breed Profiles. The one thing I don't appreciate is a woman named Marcia King writes articles in some of the issues that are too animal-rights activist for me. Definitely subscribe!

3-0 out of 5 stars NOT REALLY WORTH THE MONEY
Horse Illustrated is a nice, slick, colorful, and simplistic magazine appropriate for the young horse lover who isn't ready for a greater depth of information about the equine world.This is not the publication for anyone who is seriously interested in becoming informed about horse health, care, products, training, or breed information. For the more mature equestrian, it is not worth the money.A better choice is Horse Journal or Equus.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for horse owners and non-horse owners alike
This magazine is absolutely wonderful!I'm a thirten year old amateur rider, and I find these articles very interesting and informative without loading you down with complex terms.I don't use a lot of the articles yet, like training articles, but the information I gain is very valuable.Here's a layout:

Feature Articles:There are always seven to ten feature articles, which are long, informative articles on training, tips on looking for a barn, using good fencing, or maybe just a sport that it informs you about.


Equipage:This column, by Moira C. Harris, talks about observations of the equine world or advice she's acquired over the years.

Life with Horses:This is a humorous column by Cindy Hale that looks at the funny side of all things equine.

Back in Z Saddle:By Soraya O' Sullivan, this column shows the equine life of Soraya, going day by day.

Vet Files:The latest medical news

Western Roundup:News for the Western rider

English Arena:News for the English rider

This Month On:Stuff on www.horseillustrated.com


Mail Pouch:Readers write to Horse Illustrated

Horseman's World:The latest news

Illustrated Shopper, Ad Index, Breeder Directory, Classified Advertising, Gallery, Gallery Advertising:Stuff for you to look at

Breed Profile:Each month features a breed and its history, plus a tear-out poster.

There's even more, too.This is a great magazine.The only thing I don't like about it is all the advertisements, but the great articles make it ok.Oh yeah, and the photographs are great too.Enjoy this magazine!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent and Informative for all Equestrians
I have been riding for over 15 years and I consider myself more or less knowledgable when it comes to our sport (I am a hunter/jumper rider and competitor); but this magazine constantly reminds me of how much more I have to learn.It is truly an excellent resource for any equestrian!Every issue is filled with interesting, well written articles.There are so many how-to articles, riding explanations, and interviews with/articles about many of the sport's top riders that provide the reader with a wealth of knowledge, ideas and techniques.

I have had a subscription for over four years, and every month I still find myself anxiously awaiting the arrival of the newest issue.I have had subscriptions to other horse magazines in the past and I can certify that, for the majority of english riders and competitors, this magazine far outdoes the others.I am not going to list the others as I still feel they are good sources and I don't want to put them down, but I do have to say that in my opinion this magazine is without a doubt the best english-riding equestrian magazine available.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for the English Rider
This is a great magazine for the hunter/jumper rider.It contains alot of great training tips for the show circuit.

5-0 out of 5 stars Top-notch magazine for English riders at all levels!
Of all the horse magazines I've read and subscribed to over the years, "Practical Horseman" is by far the best for English riders (particularly those involved with dressage, show jumping, hunter jumping, and cross-country jumping). They publish consistently high-quality "how to" articles on a variety of riding and training topics, with information for both advanced and beginning riders. These articles are usually accompanied by clear, step-by-step photographs, which are very helpful. In addition, there are articles on horse care, stable management, tack upkeep, rider fitness, current news from the show world, and more. Keep in mind, though, that everything is geared entirely toward English riders, so if you participate in Western disciplines you'll want to look elsewhere.

Another upside of the magazine is its great photography. While not as artistic in nature as "Horse Illustrated" (a beautiful magazine picture-wise, but much more elementary in article content than "Practical Horseman"), there are plenty of really great shots of top horses and riders in training and competition. These serve as good reference photos for the artistically inclined.

My one gripe is the overwhelming quantity of ads. Of course more and more magazines are including more and more advertisements as time goes on, but for some reason it particularly stands out for me with "Pratical Horseman." It often seems like the magazine is 2/3 advertising and 1/3 actual content. However, I won't knock any points off my rating, as this doesn't reflect on the quality of the articles themselves, which are excellent. If you're an English rider, no matter what your level of training and skill, this is an invaluable source of information. ... Read more

I have got this mag for 2 years now and it helped me train my barrel racing mare, and now i am using the articles to helpwith my tb colt!Its great, full of easy to follow instructions and pics!

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended
Great magazine. I have been reading it for a few years now and have found it interesting and useful. The photos within are also excellent. My only quirk with the magazine has been a few problems I have had with receiving my subscription copy. Seems to arrive a bit erratically - on time sometimes and then it can be a month to two months late at other times (remember I am in Australia)!... However, the quality of the mag makes it worthwhile keeping up the subscription!... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Was there when it started.
The Western Horseman is THE horse magazine.It started in 1936.My mother wrote an article that was published in Volume 2, Number 4 in 1937.It was about the cowboys in New Mexico along the Pecos River.The ranch was the Turkey Track. I would like to have the issue, but over the years it disappeared.We, she and I raised horses for many years in Kansas and Oklahoma until a back injury slowed me down.
Over the years the magazine has kept up with the changing styles and breeds of western horses.More power to them!!
Keep me in mind if you have the issue I mentioned, and would like to sell it to me.

5-0 out of 5 stars The classic horseman's magazine!!
I can't remember when I started reading Western Horseman.My mother had a subscription back in the fifties, even though we had Arabians and half-Arabians.As the title suggests, Western Horseman is a magazine for western horsemen.Back in the fifties you wouldn't see an English saddle in the magazine.However, I read it cover-to-cover then and I read it that way now.Even during the time I couldn't own a horse, I read Western Horseman.Nowdays, they occasionally include a horse with an English or, more likely, an Australian or Endurance saddle among all those western stock seat saddles.But that is fine.Western Horseman is what it claims to be, the premier magazine for western horsemen even if they don't live in the west or ride stock seat.The magazine is full of information about western stock horse disciplines.Their articles are basic and practical.Their writers are people I have never met but whose names are as familiar to me as my next-door-neighbor.They write about horse people. I have learned about rodeo clowns, bullriders, cowboy poets and western artists as well as horses.They write about the western way of life and those people who try to preserve it even as it changes around them.So, if you buy Western Horseman, and I hope you do, don't expect to read only about horses, although you will find plenty about horses.Expect to read about western horsemen in all their variations.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best horse magazine
Western Horseman is the premier horse magazine, with articles on all aspects of horses and horsemanship from trailers and trailering to horse packing, shoeing, disease and parasite control as well as special focus pieces on the different breeds of horse. If you like the outdoors and horses, you will love this magazine. ... Read more
