John Wayne is the star of Big Jake, so we don't have to tell you who plays the title role. When his grandson (played by real-life son Ethan Wayne) is kidnapped by scurrilous baddie Richard Boone, Big Jake sets out to deliver the $1 million ransom. On the off-chance that there'll be gunplay, Jake brings along his sons Patrick Wayne and Chris Mitchum (the son of Bob). In one of her most passive screen roles, Maureen O'Hara plays Jake's estranged wife. Bruce Cabot provides unexpected comedy relief as a scraggly Indian Scout. Wayne fans will not be disappointed by the film's explosive denouement. The only real drawback to Big Jake is the presence of singer Bobby Vinton in a dramatic role.
