Watched tonight for the first time, mostly for Lee Marvin. Not a great movie, even if you try to lower expectations per John Ford’s “we’re not going for any prizes” commentary. Worth a chance because it looks good though. Not much Lee Marvin, and John Wayne being John Wayne is pretty much a bore. Could kind of be considered a tropical Christmas movie, but not for me; it’s no We’re No Angels.
It’s the kind of picture where everybody gets what they want in the end, even a model train set for Gilhooley.
