Based on the short story The Stage to Lordsburg by Ernest Haycox, this smash hit by renowned director John Ford revolutionized the western as we know it today. Starring John Wayne in his breakthrough role as The Ringo Kid, the film follows a group of strangers, on a stagecoach as they travel west through dangerous Apache territory. Filled with spectacular scenery and detailed character sketches, Stagecoach has been lauded as one of the best westerns ever made. In his 2003 review, Roger Ebert said, “John Ford has swept aside ten years of artifice and talkie compromise and has made a motion picture that sings a song of camera.” [US, 1939, Runtime: 96 min, Not Rated]
