Double Feature: BIG JAKE, 1971, 110 min. Dir. George Sherman. John Wayne is Jacob McCandles, a former gunfighter summoned by his estranged family when his grandson is kidnapped. Ruthless outlaw Richard Boone holds the boy hostage in Mexico, demanding a fortune in ransom; Big Jake rides in for a shootout rather than a pay-off. <br /><br /> RIO GRANDE, 1950, Paramount, 105 min. John Wayne stars as an officer defending settlers against Apaches on the Texas border when his estranged son shows up as a new Army recruit - followed by the boy’s mother (Maureen O’Hara), who wants her son back. The last of director John Ford’s “cavalry trilogy,” RIO GRANDE was the first of five pairings between Wayne and O’Hara (as well as the film debut of Wayne’s son Patrick).
