Ride Him Cowboy - Region 1 (NTSC) DVD
InformationJohn Wayne Sets His Sights on Stardom
A judge aims to sentence to death a spirited horse accused of trampling a man. "Not so fast", says a stranger. If he can gentle the stallion, will the court let it live? The deal is struck, so Ride Him, Cowboy.This is the first of six dust-and-gunsmoke films John Wayne made for Warner Brothers in the 11 months spanning August 1932 to July 1933. Up and coming actor John Wayne portrays John Drury, a harmonica playing drifter from Texas who rescues the white steed (ironically named Duke), tracks a notorious killer called the Hawk and faces the accusation that villainous Hawk is none other than John Drury.
It would be seven years be Wayne rolled to stardom on Stagecoach, but the long trail to western cowboy fame, begins here.
