    Duke's First Lead Role in The Big Trail

    |
    |
    Posted .

    John Wayne has his first leading role in this B&W 1930 western shot in early 70mm wide screen. Both John Ford and Gary Cooper had to pass on this film, but Ford told the director Raoul Walsh about a young prop man that he liked the looks of, and after a screen test, Raoul put the Duke into the films lead role, as a trapper who is seeking to find the killers of his fellow trapper, who had his furs stolen. During his quest is takes a job as a scout for a large wagon train of settles headed across the Oregon Trail in 1843, because he has a notion that the villains, he is after, are among the people on the wagon train. There is a love interest and attempts on Coleman's (Wayne) life when the bad guys want to take him out as a witness to their crimes. This DVD has the 35mm version, which is short about 14 mins that the 70mm version has.

    1930 and John Wayne's first BIG ROLE in this ancient Black & White "talkie" ... a tribute to its time, if not the best Wayne flick you'll ever see.

    Good if not great. Most such choices depend on your personal taste ... and how far back in the history of American cinema you want to go.

    The Big Trail was one of the Duke's early films, and it shows, as much of the acting leaves something to be desired. Still the story as a whole is decent, and worth watching to get an inkling of what the pioneer life was like.

    Good early John Wayne movie. You get to see a younger, skinnier John which I enjoyed.
