Great movie!...right up there with “High Noon”, “Sergeant York”, “The Quiet Man”, “Stagecoach” and “How the West Was Won.
Gene Pitney sang the theme song but only on the record, not on the movie
My favorite western is “Red River” but “Liberty” is right up there, one of the best ever.
It also shows John Wayne both in his usual role and in another.
This is THE western movie. It’s the standard to which others aspire.
‘Big Jake’ is on AMC at 2000hrs also. One of my personal favorites.
“No, sir. This is the West, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend”
It still works today.
“That’s my steak, Valance.”
For you guys who can’t get AMC and if you kept that old VCR I find great old movies in VHS at places for a couple of bucks. Or you can go here : new for $5 delivered....
“no, I said YOU pick it up...” ;-)
Hey Vendome, how ‘bout this? > “Madam, the fact that a chicken can lay a perfect egg does not entitle her to crow like a rooster.”
....Quotes from Paladin in HGWT......
Agree. I stopped watching amc when they started commercial breaks during movies.
Same reason i do not watch movies on networks, usa, tnt, etc.
Still watch tcm because they do not show commercials.
We could do this all night; it's such a great movie. I heard somewhere that John Wayne thought that he had two Oscar-worthy performances - Liberty Valance and She Wore A Yellow Ribbon. I might add one or two more but it is a shame he wasn't recognized for either of those, but instead for a movie where he was good, but not great.
Liberty Valance,my fav. You just can’t beat John Wayne,Jimmy Stewart and Lee Marvin.Strother Martin is good in any movie.
I attempt to watch any movie or tv show with Strother Martin. I’m attempting to identify many of the great character actors who participated in hundreds of westerns and other flicks in the fifties and sixties. Martin was certainly in many. And always memorable.
One of the ten best Western movies of all time.
“The Searchers” was an Academy award performance by the Duke.
Today is Saturday here in Michigan.
Looks like Lee Marvin is still in character, lol ...
Jimmy Stewart was too old for the part, but the supporting cast was incredible. Andy Devine was great. Lee Marvin was incredible. Strother Martin again proved he was one of the greatest character actors of the 1960s and 70s. Lee Van Cleef was still the best 60’s villain after Bruce Dern. And John Wayne....Damn it, he was John Wayne!
Lee Van Cleef, Lee Marvin, John Wayne, and Jimmy Stewart...now those were REAL MEN, not like today's stars who have to fellate their producers to get a movie role. About the only star who I can even imagine being man enough to get a role like this is Russell Crowe, and he's from New Zealand.
John Wayne considered “Red River” as his best film. If you ever look at some of the famous pictures of Wayne, he wears a belt buckle with the Red River “D” brand on it.
I have also read that he used the same brand on his own ranch.
Driftless : “I attempt to watch any movie or tv show with Strother Martin.” Interesting Idea. Ever notice how many places Glenn Strange turns up in westerns?
Well, since he played the barkeep in numerous “Gunsmoke” episodes, quite a few I’d guess.
Yes it's strange.
I didn't capitalize The last S to make it harder to get the pun. uh wait....I'm on FR.....never mind.
Watched this movie in a drive-in in 1966 in Columbus, GA with my future wife, sitting in a maroon 1964 Mustang.
“Lee Van Cleef, Lee Marvin, John Wayne, and Jimmy Stewart...”
It’s Brigadier General James Stewart to you, son.
He's in four Perry Mason's:
The Case of the Hasty Honeymooner (1965)
The Case of the Drowsy Mosquito (1963) Gerald Sommers
The Case of the Fickle Filly (1962) Joe Mead
The Case of the Brazen Bequest (1961) Pete Gibson
great trivia question? Paladin’s first name is wire ?
So what about Lee Marvin? Is Lee Marvin in it?
Burt Bachrach, who wrote the song, said the song was inspired by the movie. That’s the only connection.
But I really liked the song, too!
Could you not write so tiny? Some of us here on FR have trouble reading such tiny writing.
It’s funny...the “wimpiest” one in the bunch is probably the most-decorated. However, Lee Marvin fought in World War II and was severely wounded at Saipan. Lee Van cleef served on a minesweeper during WW II. John Wayne, while never actually fighting, did go to front line units while visiting in Vietnam, and most of the soldiers, Sailors, and Marines who served over the years have little problem with him.
Paladin was on weekly when I was a kid. I thought his first name was “Wire” until my older brother explained the card simply said to Wire, Paladin in San Francisco to contact him.
In other words send a message by telegraph addressed to Paladin.
Four of my favorite actors! Lee Van Clief, Lee Marvin, Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne!
Too bad John Wayne began to play parodies of himself after this. I have a preference for Saint RANDOLPH SCOTT!
Too bad it’s not on TCM without commercials

Woody Strode, not a man you would want to meet anywhere unless he liked you.
No. The calling card is saying “telegraph”.
Also plenty of tough guys from Australia, Great Britain. Canada. It's just the US that's gone metrosexual these days
