Hondo (1953)



Reviews and Comments

A memorable John Wayne character is Hondo Lane, the main character of Hondo, which later spawned a television series. Although Wayne's high-profile persona tends to suggest caricature more than character, Wayne actually played a great deal of very solid, unique characters, and Hondo is one of them. His character is fascinating to watch, and it's a large part of what elevates this western above the norm.
