French label Wild Side Video will release a combo pack edition of director Howard Hawks' Red River (1948), starring John Wayne, Montgomery Clift and Joanne Dru. The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across France on March 6th.
Tom Dunson (John Wayne) and his adopted son (Montgomery Clift) lead the cattle train which establishes the Chisholm Trail. However, father and son argue when it comes to bringing law and order to the Wild West: Tom is tied to an authoritarian approach, whilst his son favours a more liberal stance, refusing to resort to the law of the gun.
