Flick Pick: The Shootist

The Shootist
(Paramount, 1976)

Few actors get to make a great last picture. John Wayne was one of those few. While he didn't know at the time it was his final screen appearance, it was a letter perfect last hurrah, with long-time friends and co-stars filling out the cast list. The entire film is one long lead-in to the final John Wayne shootout, and it's worthy of both the movie and the man, providing one of the best exclamation points at the end of anyone's screen career.
