Big Jake is one of my favorite JW films. Even though he was getting up there, it was a great movie. Alot of great lines, and just a fun film to watch. Watching Duke smack around his kid after calling him Daddy and then whapping the other kid for scaring him after the motorcycle crash were priceless. It was just a great movie to watch. There is a movie poster of this film that will eventually go in my son's room, his name is Jacob, but we did not name him after this film. But since he looks like he is going to be over 6 feet according to the doc's, well Big Jake will probably be his nickname.
Maureen O Hara in her book implied scenes had been shot but were edited to make the film less than two hours. It does seem to have a jumpy uneven edit that gives the impression feel that there were scenes cut from movie. Whether they still exist, could be found or could be restored to a theatrical movie is anybody's guess.
Interestingly this movie was shown on BBC recently and a college at worked watched it and enjoyed it immensely, however he claims to have seen the movie before and indicated that the version he watched had a home coming scene featuring Maureen O'Hara. Can anyone shed any light on this?
I'm watching an episode of "Have Gun Will Travel" right now, and Paladin has taken up the cause of a range war between brothers...The DeVries brothers, and one is named Walt!!
Interesting how the name is used again in a movie with Rchard Boone 12 years later!!
Paramount Home Entertainment will release Big Jake and Rio Lobo on Blu-ray on May 31. Other westerns Paramount is releasing on Blu-ray that day are A Man Called Horse and Once Upon a Time in the West.
No additional information about Big Jake and Rio Lobo but hopefully we'll get specs and cover art soon. :)

Shortly after becoming a grandmother, Maureen was contacted by John Wayne to play the role of his wife in this film. A small role, but it was Duke who asked! ...
Filmed in Mexico, found in many of the film society actors Ford and the children of John Wayne. Some beautiful scenes Wayne-O'Hara were left in the editing room. The film was a moderate success, possibly because of excessive violence? ...
