Theatrical trailer for the enjoyable 1967 John Wayne western, THE WAR WAGON. Produced by Wayne's own production company, Btajac, directed by Burt Kennedy and co-starring "The Duke" with Kirk Douglas, the film -- about an attempt to rob an armor plated frontier wagon replete with a gattling gun and carrying a fortune in gold -- featured a solid supporting cast that included Howard Keel, Keenan Wynn, Robert Walre Jr., Bruce Cabot and, in a minor role, Bruce Dern.
This is the longest of three theatrical trailers issued for THE WAR WAGON, with Wayne and Douglas individually featured hosting each of the slightly shorter versions. Also, the film's stirring title song, "The Ballad of the War Wagon," by Dimitri Tiompkin and Ned Washington and sung by Ed Ames, was released concurrently with the film's release.
