    User Review
    The Gunfighter
    5 February 2004 | by Single-Black-Male (London, England)
    In this film, the 29 year old John Wayne demonstrates his marksmanship as a gunfighter.
    He was married and his wife had given birth to Michael Wayne two years earlier.
    By now, he was well on his way to becoming a thoroughbred cowboy
    because the breadth and depth of the westerns that he was appearing in.

    Here are some previous posts

    :New Update:

    I was in contact with the company laintyler was in contact with back in September 2003.

    They check out my request, and said that the movie is copyright with Republic Pictures
    which is owned by Paramount Pictures. They have this movie according to my source,
    and they have not announced any release of this movie.

    I haven't contacted Paramount yet, but according to my source they do have the masters of The Oregon Trail.
    We may have this copy yet, and it appears that this is not a lost film. Let's hope!

    Cheers B)

    The word is that Paramount has the rights to this movie. They have not released it.
    We don't know if they will release it or not. I plan to contact them about this movie
    and ask if they in fact have the masters of the movie. And if they do, will they release it anytime soon.

    My contact told me they have a bad copy of the movie, but do not have the rights to make the film into a DVD
    and release it to the market. They will not pursue this under law. So we are depending on Paramount
    to do this movie for us and maybe release it.

    That's all the information I have. Having the rights doesn't necessarily mean they have any master negatives.
    We'll have to wait and see about that. Studios take their time answering e-mails.

    Cheers B)

    Hi Hondo.

    Yes I undertood you right the first time, but this means that there is hope.
    After all the major releases are out I feel that there is a good chance of everything possible will be released.
    Let's face it. If the film is released the chances are that it's not a very good movie,
    but since I have sat through most of his B-westerns and enjoyed them I would welcome it.

    My real question was if anyone had seen it or knew of anyone who had seen it.

    BTW, isn't this thread in the wrong forum?

    Re: The Oregon Trail (1936)

    Hi

    I always been led to believe that of the two versions of The Oregon trail made by Republic the John Wayne version was lost. Hopefully it may be the one that paramount are talking about, but I won't hold my breath.

    Re: The Oregon Trail (1936)

    i was doing a little research on our national film archives web sit and found a listing for the oregon trail made by universal it was listed as production date: c.1939 dont know if that refers to the year it was released or what. it states that it is a black and white movie on 35mm. if anyone can have a look they might be able to confirm if it is the lost john wayne movie or not. it was produced as a feature film. the title number is 33582

    Hi Smokey,

    Checked up that for you.
    The film mentioned in your archives was in fact
    another film with the same title.

    Take a look here:-

    With all the film archives around the world, you would think it may turn up someday.
