2014 John Wayne Film Festival: The War Wagon
The 2014 John Wayne Film Festival will present The War Wagon, the 1967 film in which Taw Jackson (Wayne) returns from prison to the ranch and gold that Frank Pierce (Bruce Cabot) stole from him. Jackson makes a deal with Lomax (Kirk Douglas), the man who shot him five years ago, to join forces against Pierce and steal a large gold shipment. The shipments are transported in the War Wagon, an armored stage coach that is heavily guarded. The two of them become the key players in the caper to separate Pierce from Jackson's gold.
