An extraordinary western – Ford’s first with Monument Valley locations – about a diverse group of western types riding the stage from Tonto to Lordsburg. It’s not an unusual story, but the filming is among the greatest work in the history of film. With (a wonderfully young) John Wayne, Thomas Mitchell, Claire Trevor, John Carradine, Donald Meek and Andy Devine.
DIRECTOR: John Ford
