Told in flashback, the movie tells the story of three contrasting characters who played key roles in the throes of the late 19th century conflict between the Wild West and a more law-abiding society. James Stewart plays U.S. Senator Ransom Stoddard, who years earlier when he was a young lawyer was terrorized and robbed by a gang of outlaws headed by the brutal Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin). Stoddard forms an uneasy alliance with an old-time cowboy, played by John Wayne, which leads to Stoddard becoming—despite his misgivings—a hero and political leader.
“The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” is considered one of director John Ford’s masterpieces.
