The first portion of this clip (up until 1:14) contains John Wayne‘s best scene ever. The resolve mixed with fatigue and resignation, the perfect phrasing, the way he turns to Montgomery Clift when he says “one time you’ll turn around and I’ll be there” and then turns away for the final line: “I’m gonna kill ya, Matt.” God, he was good when he was good! And then Dimitri Tiomkin‘s music kicks in with just the right feeling and emphasis.
