The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

This classic western, directed by John Ford, is nothing short of excellent as it follows the adventures of a fragile yet ambitious attorney-at-law, played by James Stewart, who stands up to vicious outlaw Liberty Valance, played by Lee Marvin. John Wayne costars as a tough fellow (surprise, eh?) who doesn't particularly care for Stewart, but watches his back anyway. An entertaining film filled with interesting characters and an exciting plot. Recommended!
