If you don't like it, that's fair enough, but there's much more to his filmography than that one film and his other westerns were really good. If I had to pick a non-Western which was almost compulsory viewing, it would be The Grapes of Wrath.

I was considering whether to pick Clementine up from Arrow's sale while the Ltd Edition is still available. My issues with The Searchers were that it started off well then around thirty mins in becomes dreadfully dull with more aimless meandering than actual searching. John Wayne's performance frequently seems to descend into self parody and Jeffery Hunter just seemed to be in the wrong film altogether. Add to that the bizarre shifts in tone, the silly songs and Wayne's character's sudden change of heart in the last 2 minutes i just thought it was a mess. So i suppose what I'm asking is if i feel like that about The Searchers do i stand a chance of liking Clementine.

That's John Wayne in a nutshell for me. I can't stand him.

I've only seen Searchers, Rio Bravo, True Grit and a long time ago The Quiet Man. Rio Bravo and True Grit are brilliant. Particularly the former. Can't really remember The Quiet Man.

I thought Maggie was the most mind-blowingly boring movie Arnie's ever made!

Maggie's not bad but it is quite slow. Why Arnie is in it I don't really know.

Thief is excellent - along with Manhunter it's my favourite from Mann.

I can't comment on any of the others.

Thief isn't good, it's great. Brilliant film.
