Two cinematic legends, John Wayne and Kirk Douglas, team up to seize a small fortune in gold in this action-packed western classic. Wayne plays Taw Jackson, a range-hardened rancher who's hell-bent on capturing the infamous War Wagon, an ironclad stagecoach protected by a small army of men and owned by a thieving cattle baron who robbed Taw of his gold and good name years before. To get even, Jackson recruits Lomax (Douglas), a brash gunslinger, and a raucous crew of misfits and readies them to pull off one of the most impossible heists of all time.

    John Wayne is a ex-con who goes after the man that put him in jail and stole his land, which had gold on it. He assembles a rag tag team to pull a high stakes robbery. Kirk Douglas plays a playboy, safecracking, gunslinger who hatred for Wayne makes them unlikely partners. The plot hits all the marks and it plays out well in the end.
