Plot Summary
Questions arise when Senator Stoddard (James Stewart) attends the funeral of a local man named Tom Doniphon (John Wayne) in a small Western town. Flashing back, we learn Doniphon saved Stoddard, then a lawyer, when he was roughed up by a crew of outlaws terrorizing the town, led by Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin). As the territory's safety hung in the balance, Doniphon and Stoddard, two of the only people standing up to him, proved to be very important, but different, foes to Valance.

    This is an excellent western and is highly under-rated. It certainly is one of John Ford's best films! The cast is superb and the characters wonderfully developed. Along with The Searchers, I would rank this as one of the best of its genre.
