Descripción del producto
Katie Elder tuvo cuatro hijos. El día en que va a ser enterrada todos regresan a su hogar en Clearwater, Texas. John Wayne es el mayor y el más rudo, con gran habilidad con las armas. Tom resulta muy bueno con una baraja de cartas y también con una pistola, cuando se ve obligado a ello. Matt es el más callado nadie le llama cobarde... dos veces. Bud es el más joven; nadie puede dudar de su respetabilidad. Dirigida por Henry Hathaway, reconocido maestro del western, la película supone una historia de tipos duros y, al mismo tiempo, un apasionante retrato sobre la influencia de una madre en sus hijos

With costars Dean Martin, Earl Holliman, and Michael Anderson Jr., Wayne, as the older brother John Elder, leads his brothers in the battle to recover their ranch and avenge the murder of their father. James Gregory plays the evil and conniving Morgan Hastings, the man who stole the ranch, and his hired killer is the brawny George Kennedy. Against impossible odds, the Elder boys find themselves in a gunfight to the death trapped beneath a bridge. Here they make their heroic last stand in an epic gun battle.
The strong supporting cast make this film work. Dean Martin is exceptionally good as Tom Elder. Paul Fix, a standard in many Wayne films, plays the sheriff, and Martha Hyer plays the female lead (a very small but important part).
The plot moves right along, and there is plenty of action that makes this film an entertaining 2 hours.
Wayne went on to film many more westerns, including True Grit (1969), in which he won his only Oscar. He would die of stomach cancer in 1979 in California UCLA Hospital. He remains beloved and iconic long after his death.
The late Katie Elder was beloved by everyone and her presence lingers palpably throughout the picture, and so John, Tom, Matt, and Bud come to face the rancor and scorn of the townspeople. Everyone condemns them for having abandoned their mother in her direst time of need. It's a poor homecoming. Further obstacles surface in the shape of the menacing gunslinger (George Kennedy) privately contracted by the Elder ranch's concerned new owner, and there's also the ongoing harassment by the very pushy sheriff's deputy. When things go sideways, the blame readily shifts to the Elder brothers. And, wait, is that a lynch mob over there?
Seasoned director Henry Hathaway helms an old school western that has its share of rousing moments but also dabbles in introspection. This is the second time John Wayne and Dean Martin would work together (after their glorious RIO BRAVO), and they're still sympatico, Deano roguishly taking on his trademark gambler/hustler character and the Duke playing the surly eldest brother and infamous gunfighter. Wayne, then 58-years-old, returned to the silver screen after his cancer operation, not that you'd know it. John Wayne looms tall and rugged and resolute as ever. Earl Holliman and Michael Anderson, Jr. round out the remaining Elder brothers, and it ain't their fault their light don't glow near as bright as Wayne and Deano's.
The key performers get a lot of elbow room to play in, what with the Elder brothers being such a boisterous, bickering, brawling bunch, and much of the brawny humor comes from their interactions amongst each other. It's almost like SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS, except that people pump lead into each other and there's no barn-raising dance-off. A young Dennis Hopper chews up the scenery some. Martha Hyer serves as the chaste eye candy. And main villain James Gregory does well with his three-dimensional role. His larcenous land grabber starts out even-keeled but progressively takes more and more of a heel turn as the story progresses.
There's a contemplative, bittersweet tone in this film. You can sense the Elder boys' regret in their neglect of their mother. And how damning to learn that during their absent years, Katie Elder had lied for them, had told the world how regularly her sons sent her money, even though the two eldest sons (Wayne and Martin's characters) were roaming the West wanted by the law. The pace could have picked up some. There could have been more action, instead of most of it being relegated to the final act. But John Wayne is still John Wayne, indomitable. Dean Martin demonstrates skills that went beyond his singing and drunken act. THE SONS OF KATIE ELDER, no classic, nevertheless falls in that category of reliable westerns that endure the test of time. I like this movie.
