   schema:reviewBody ""Red River (1947) is one of Howard Hawks' near-perfect films. Shot on location (in Arizona) in luminous black and white, it makes epic visual poetry out of the spectacle of a vast herd of cattle moving across the western landscape. John Wayne plays Tom Dunson, a ruthless and hardened cattle baron determined to drive his herd across dangerous country. Montgomery Cliff, making his movie debut, stars opposite as the younger man who risks everything by challenging Dunson's authority. A supporting cast, including Joanne Dru, Walter Brennan and Harry Carey Sr., gives typically fine support." "Suzanne Liandrat-Guigues traces the complex motifs that run through Red River, bringing out its formal sophistication and the way it evokes certain incidents in the history of the American West. She focuses particular attention on the actors' contributions and the film's place in Hawks' career."--Jacket." ;
