Fort Apache (BD)
John Ford's 1948 classic stars John Wayne as a Cavalry officer used to doing things a certain way out West at Fort Apache. Along comes a rigid, new commanding officer (Henry Fonda) who insists that everything on his watch be done by the book, including dealings with local Indians. The results are mixed: greater discipline at the fort, but increased hostilities with the natives. Ford deliberately leaves judgments about the wisdom of these changes ambiguous, but he also allows plenty of room in this wonderful film for the fullness of life among the soldiers and their families--community rituals, new romances--to blossom. Fonda, in an unusual role for him, is stern and formal as the new man in charge; Wayne is heroic as the rebellious second; Victor McLaglen provides comic relief; and Ward Bond is a paragon of sturdy and sentimental masculinity. All of this is set against the magnificent, poetic topography of Monument Valley. This is easily one of the greatest of American films. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I grew up in the middle of America in the 1950's and my parents were both Veterans of the US Navy in WWII so I was a dyed in the wool, Born and Bred John Wayne fan since Birth.Published on Aug. 25 2013 by Chales V. Jones
I thoroughly enjoyed this one especially because it starred Ward Bond who is a favorite of mine. Another great production by John Ford and starring "The Duke".Published on Feb. 21 2013 by Ladybird

A younger Wayne but still a great actor and who doesn't like Henry Fonda. This movie was definitely a big surprise for me but a first class surprise. Read morePublished on Jan. 10 2013 by Remember Amer. Bandstand
This is one of the series you need to get if you are an avid fan of John Wayne.
To add to this would be She Wore a Yellow Ribbon and Rio Grande. Read more
