Red River's Manifest Destiny

John Wayne as a colonizer...Indian killer...murderer...cattle rustler...tyrant...and slaveowner. Howard Hawks's Red River has it all.

If Wayne's character is supposed to be the good guy, I'd hate to see a bad guy. If only the Lone Ranger and Tonto could hunt him down for his crimes.

Read my review of the movie here:  Indians in Red River.
