Red River Movie Summary
Spread out over a period of 14 years, Red River is a favorite among many Western connoisseurs. Director Howard Hawks, one of the greats from the Golden Age of Hollywood, helmed this revered western classic which has overtones of Mutiny on the Bounty.
John Wayne is the tyrannical Thomas Dunson, whom we meet while deciding to breakaway from a wagon train. Resisting the advances of a beautiful woman to stay, Dunson still bails. Later, we see the ominous smoke on the horizon from an Indian attack on the group he left behind.
Later, out on the trail, there is a fierce knife fight with an Indian. Once victorious, Dunson discovers the dead man wearing the bracelet his late female suitor once owned. A young boy, Matt Garth, strays onto the scene, and joins Dunson who raises him as a son. Dunson has big dreams of settling in Texas, and spreading his brand from a cow and a bull to an entire farming property dynasty.read full summary
