During the 30 years from 1871 to 1901, J. B. Books has become a legend. He is feared and admired as one of the West's greatest gunfighters. He is also the target for everyone out to make a 'reputation'. When Books arrives in a small town he seeks the advice of Dr Hostetler, who diagnoses cancer. The ageing gunfighter decides that his remaining days will not be wasted. In his last film, John Wayne plays J. B. Books brilliantly, in a style which mixes the ending of his own legendary career with the dying days of the mythical gunfighter he portrays.
Screenplay by MILES HOOD SWARTHOUT and scott HALE Based on the novel by GLENSON SWARTHOUT
