Synopsis:
Katie Elder bore four sons. The day she is buried they all return home to Clearwater, Texas, to pay their last respects. John Wayne is the oldest and toughest son, the gunslinger. Tom (Dean Martin) is good with a deck of cards and good with a gun when he has to be. Matt (Earl Holliman) is the quiet one - nobody ever called him yellow... twice. Bud (Michael Anderson, Jr.) is the youngest. Whatever hopes for respectability the Elder name has lies with him. Directed by Henry Hathaway, an acknowledged master of the Western, the story has a dual theme: not only is this a he-man`s story, but it is also a drama of the material influence of Katie Elder, movingly portrayed from beginning to conclusion.
