Nine disparate travelers are thrust together on a ‘Stagecoach’ destined for Apache territory…and movie immortality. As the Ringo Kid, director John Ford cast a lanky veteran of 70 B-movies, serials and shorts named John Wayne. Each rifle shot and closeup rang out the news: a new star is born. Claire Trevor, Thomas Mitchell (his Academy Award®-winning performance) and others made memorable impressions. Stunt legend Yakima Canutt provided hair-raising thrills. And 17 American folk songs formed the basis of an Oscar®-winning score. This grown-up adventure ushered in a 30-year era of great Westerns, many teaming its supreme practitioners – Ford and Wayne.
