The Reviews for The Shepherd of the Hills (1941) 720p

An interesting story, coincidentally given the same title as Harold Bell Wright's famous novelReviewed byLanin ThomasmaVote: 7/10

I found this to be an interesting, compelling story. I'd be curious to know where the producers of the film came up with it. It was certainly not based on Harold Bell Wright's novel "The Shepherd of the Hills", despite their use of the book's cover in the opening sequence, and of like-named characters throughout the movie.

I didn't dislike the film, and I would recommend it to anyone as an enjoyable work. I would also recommend, after having watched it, to find a copy of Wright's book "The Shepherd of the Hills" and read it as well. It's quite a good story, too. Don't worry about the film giving away the ending of the book - there's no resemblance between the two.

The trail of the lonesome manReviewed bydbdumonteilVote: 8/10

This is an overlooked John Wayne movie ,as well as an overlooked Hathaway's -who in his long career produced more great or good movies than wretched ones :"Peter Ibbetson" is one of the most beautiful romantic movies I know,"lives of a Bengal lancer is adventures movie quintessence and "Niagara" remains one of Marilyn Monroe's best films ,to name but three.

John Wayne is cast against type in "the shepherd" ;he is not really the he-man but a frail human being ,born under a bad sign , with a curse hanging over him .The characters and the atmosphere are not unlike those of "the trail of the lonesome pine" which Hathaway made five years earlier ,with the same wonderful color.

Some scenes are admirable:when Wayne 's old man enters the room of the old home,he feels a presence in the room : the furniture, the things ,everything reminds him of the woman he's never stopped loving (he is as romantic as Peter Ibbetson!).Another memorable scene shows the old man and his son fishing in the river :watch closely and you'll hear a ravaged tale ;the gentler side of the movie hides real fury (and Hathaway does not indulge himself a flashback of the stormy fateful night).

Actually,John Wayne 's character is not so much bitter as wistful and it's one of the actors' best performances;but it's all the cast that should be praised .Add it to your Hathaway list.

not true to book - does that make this a spoiler? Hmmm . . .Reviewed bymarcyb1Vote: 7/10

I am sorry - I'm sure this is a wonderful film, but it doesn't follow the book. In the book, Mr and Mrs Matthews both are a wonderful couple who take Daniel Howitt in his first night in the hills and offer him the job taking care of the sheep. Aunt Mollie (Mrs Matthews) is such a wonderful woman, I hate to hear her character changed as she obviously is in the film. From what I've read, the only true thing in the story is the effect Howitt had on the community. Don't just watch the film - it has merit of its own, but also read this phenomenal story. It's even better. :)The true story is such a wonderful telling of the battle between those who take the high road and those who take the low. You'll see the baldknobbers (closely kin to KKK or other raiding groups after the war.) You'll hear a tragic story of pride and the beauty of redemption. It is a must-read.
