A few emotional scenes keep viewers cheering him, even when he is less than gentle with the young lady that hires him to find her father’s killer.
Hondo: This 1953 film is all about the hard frontier life. Tension is everywhere. Tension between the whites and Native Americans, tension created when Wayne decides to defend the widow of a man he killed. This film is a perfect example of Wayne’s unique acting ability and an testament of his directing skills.
