Once John Wayne got passed B movies, he moved from hit to hit for the most part. Most of those movies are films people know, Stagecoach, Flying Tigers, Back to Bataan, among others.
In Old California doesn't get so well known. But what it is, is an absolutely well crafted western, and in a rare case for me... an authentic feeling romance that does NOT dominate the plot but rather spreads itself subtly through the entire film, complete with a few twists.
Everyone's characterization is excellent, from comedic value, to heroes and villains. This is an excellent John Wayne film for anyone who wants to find yet one more to enjoy.
