Just saw the original of this for the first time last night.  I had seen the remake with Van Heflin previously.  (Big Van Heflin fan, I try to see everything he's in).  There's something appealing about John Wayne at this stage in his career - he always manages to project a kind of almost naive affability.  What are your thoughts on the original versus the remake?  I do like most of the 1939 cast better - Donald Meek, Thomas Mitchell and Claire Trevor but I, of course, would prefer Van in the remake as the Marshal.

Glad that you finally got to see this classic.  Actually, I like both versions.  Being a huge Claire Trevor fan, I especially like the original.  She was such a great and versatile actress.

By far and away the original.

The remake 1966 IMHO was not even close

However, the remake from 1986 was IMHO exceptional and far better than the 66 version  and as good ( for different reasons) as the 39 version. 

Not for aesthetics to be sure, but the familiarity of interplay between characters was very enjoyable.
