John Bernard Books, a gunfighter approaching his 58th birthday, finds that he has cancer and has only two months to live. He takes a room with Bond Rogers and her son, Gillom, to wait until death comes. Of course, his very presence starts off events in the town. The Marshal comes, prepared to die in a shootout, Gillom tries to idolize him, Bond first is disgusted and then pities him. Then, realizing that he will die in great pain, he comes up with an idea to go out with a bang.

"22/1/17 Western drama that became John Wayne's final film and a fitting one too. Playing a dying gunfighter at the end of the old west, this proved that Wayne was a strong actor as well as being a legendary film star, holding his own along with Lauren Bacall and James Stewart. A surprisingly touching film too."
