Absolutely the worst movie.

While it is a pity that the story wasn't told with more visual finesse, this is trivial compared to our real-world problems. It takes a good movie to put that into perspective.

There is definitely an excellent idea hidden in the background of the film. Unfortunately, it's difficult to find it.

THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE is a western drama about an inspiring event, the conflict between traditional and modern ways of thinking and a big lie, which will be reflected in a rough anticlimax.A senator and his wife arrive in Shinbone, a frontier town in an unnamed western state, to attend the funeral of their old friend. A local journalist asks, why a United States Senator would make the long journey from Washington to attend the funeral of a local rancher. A Senator begins the story of a young and idealistic lawyer, which has occurred 25 years ago. His stagecoach is robbed by Liberty Valance and his gang. When he takes Valance to task, he is brutally whipped and left for dead. In Shinbone, the townspeople help him with his injuries. There is a cowardly sheriff, beautiful waitress and charming rancher, who is the only man willing to stand up to the cruel Valance...Roughly speaking, this is a story about the conflict of a resolute mind and raw power. However, an interesting plot follows the political evolution in one small town.Can a problem be resolved with the talk (by law) or with guns?Although the story occasionally turns into melodrama, Mr. Ford did not underestimate the structure of a classic western. His ironic reference is complementary with intriguing appearances of the main protagonists. An urban legend is hiding the truth, which is a milestone in the lives of the protagonists. The atmosphere is very sad and somewhat poetic. Characterization is very good.James Stewart as Ransom "Ranse" Stoddard is a bit confused, but brave and determined at the same time. His character is the epitome of honesty and justice in this film. I think that his appearance is irritating, but Mr. Stewart was again very convincing. Vera Miles as Hallie Stoddard is a very beautiful when she gets angry. She is a girl who has more courage than a local sheriff.John Wayne as Tom Doniphon is a charming and resourceful hero of this story. However, he will not graciously ride into the sunset at the end of this film. His character is, though aware that he has changed the course of a local history, suffocated in their own self-esteem and irony. Lee Marvin as Liberty Valance is a malicious and energetic maniac, who is a very good as Tom's counterweight.Sadness and melancholy at the end of the film is something totally new to the genre.

Ronson Stoddard, a lawyer, head out west in search of a new life. He settles in a small town but soon comes into conflict with the local crime lord, Liberty Valance. Stoddard's only ally is rancher Tom Doniphon. With Stoddard's knowledge of the law and Doniphon's gun, they are determined to bring Valance down.Another great western from John Ford. Great plot, with a good twist at the end. More than a conventional western-action-drama, the movie covers issues like press freedom, vigilantism, law and order, and even has a romantic angle.John Wayne and James Stewart play their parts to perfection. Lee Marvin is evil personified as Liberty Valance.A timeless classic.

James Stewart, John Wayne, Vera Miles, Lee Marvin, Edmond O'Brien, Andy Devine, Woody Strode, Jeanette Nolan, John Carradine, Ken Murray "A great film, rich in thought and feeling, composed in rhythms that vary from the elegiac to the spontaneous. This 1962 western flaunts its artificiality, both in its use of studio interiors and in the casting of an aging James Stewart as a young, idealistic lawyer who comes to the frontier. For some, the standardisation is a crippling flaw, but I find it sublime: the film takes place, through elegant flashbacks, in a past that is remembered more than lived; essences are projected over particulars." - Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader Selected by John McNaughton, Richard Combs, José Luis Garci, Jesus Franco, A.O. Scott.

No matter what, he will be always remembered as The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. This is how legends are born."The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" (1962) is a superbly solid movie, but not a traditional western. It lacks recklessness and action of previous westerns, and it is more a solid drama set in old west. This movie sort of reminded me "Unforgiven" (1992), another superb movie set in west, but not a western in usual sense. Both movies deals with a legend status, and a true grit and reality beyond the legend. Although they are very different in style and mood, both share similar feeling of change of times in the old west, when old gunslingers were replaced by law and modern times. Overall, not going into plot details, "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" is an very entertaining motion picture from start till the end. It is not a traditional western, but it a very entertaining drama set in the old west. James Stewart is great in here, while John Wayne is more or less like usual John Wayne except for the ending, nevertheless he is a joy to watch. This film also deals with a lot of great ideas which are not presented openly, but are kinda hidden in context. All in all this a great movie.
