Product Description

This landmark 1939 Western began the legendary relationship between John Ford and John Wayne, and became the standard for all subsequent Westerns. It solidified Ford as a major director and established Wayne as a charismatic screen presence. Seen today, Stagecoach still impresses as the first mature instance of a Western that is both mythic and poetic. The story about a cross-section of troubled passengers unraveling under the strain of Indian attack contains all of Ford's incomparable storytelling trademarks--particularly swift action and social introspection--underscored by the painterly landscape of Monument Valley. And what an ensemble of actors: Thomas Mitchell (who won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar as the drunken doctor), Claire Trevor, Donald Meek, Andy Devine, and the magical John Carradine. Due to the film's striking use of chiaroscuro lighting and low ceilings, Orson Welles watched Stagecoach over and over while preparing for Citizen Kane. --Bill Desowitz --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Yep, partners. The film that made The Duke a star was based on a 19th century French classic 'Sweet (or fat, depending on translation) Pudding'. A fact that Ford hid from the studio, claiming it was based on a short story by Haycox.
He had good reason to lie. Had he told the truth one of the greatest Western of all time might never had been made, and therein lies a tale. . .
Ford had a reputation for being a good money maker when he was forced to be 'down to earth' but box office poison whenever he got 'artsy', which was often. Ford was a genius and he admired great writing, bringing Eugene O' Neill to the screen---and bombing. Outside the theater the folks in 'Middle America' just didn't take to "Mourning Becomes Electra". Thus Ford had good reason to keep the true origin of "Stagecoach" under wraps.
In 'Pudding' which takes place during the Franco-Prussian war, a group of strangers board a stagecoach. Among them are two nuns, an aristocrat and his wife, a cynic, and a prostitute nicknamed "Pudding."
They treat her like dirt until they run out of food and discover she's brought some. Later, when a Prussian officer detains and threatens them, unless 'Pudding' pleasures him, even the nuns insist that she should have sex with him. She complies, but has the last laugh--she's got syphillis and has patriotically infected an enemy of France!
All the passengers are again disgusted with her, except for the cynic, who is instead revolted with the hypocrisy of his companions. The prostitute has proven nobler than the nuns and aristocrats. . .
Well, no one was ready to have a prostitute infect Cochise or Geronimo with venereal disease in a 1940's Western, but the film follows the THEME of the classic story closely: We meet, in order of social status, 1.

John Ford's "Stagecoach" is a film that undoubtedly has influenced many action-adventure film directors over the years. One need only watch its dramatic stagecoach chase sequence and compare it to George Miller's "The Road Warrior" (1982) to see some striking similarities. In addition, "Stagecoach" is also famous for being the breakout film for John Wayne who left behind his B Westerns for good after distinguishing himself here as The Ringo Kid.
The story of "Stagecoach" is simple. A lone stagecoach must cross an untamed area populated by hostile Indians. In the stagecoach is an eclectic mix of passengers from various social classes and of various reputations. The heart of the film is the relationship that develops between Wayne's fugitive and Dallas (Claire Trevor), a woman with a scandalous past. These two individuals are arguably the two low rungs on the social standing ladder amongst the film's characters. Yet, when all the chips are placed on the table, it is The Ringo Kid and Dallas who prove to be the most steadfast and dependable. Needless to say, both leads are great. Trevor in particular is the embodiment of 1930's glamour Hollywood.
If there's any one thing that people remember after watching "Stagecoach," it is the amazing chase sequence with the pursuing Indians. It is a marvel of early cinema filmmaking technique that still manages to get the blood pumping in the present day. The sequence is literally a film storyboard come to life and a testament to the notion that action sequences do not succeed in and of themselves, but succeed when carefully planned out and competently executed. This is a timeless lesson that many current filmmakers should take to heart when putting together their films

Before 1939, a young actor named John Wayne had been starring in b-movie Westerns for years. The western genre wasn't taken very seriously, and neither was the young, sauntering cowboy who starred in them. Stagecoach changed all that. Director John Ford knew talent when he saw it, and with this film one of the greatest alliance/friendships in Hollywood history was formed--that of John Wayne and John Ford. Out of this memorable alliance several wonderful films came, but this was the first.
Shot in Utah's beautiful Monument Valley, Stagecoach follows the adventures of a group of unlikely traveling companions as they cross the stage route in an effort to stay clear of Geronimo and his band. Along the way, the group picks up the Ringo kid (Wayne), a confirmed killer. As the journey progresses, the group's true colors come forth, a young prostitute who was driven from her home (played by Claire Trevor) becomes the true heroine, and the stuck-up aristocratic woman, the banker, and the whiskey peddler are forced to learn a valuable lesson--that true inner character is far more important than social status.
The movie itself is a masterpiece, from the brilliant storyline to the climactic ending with the Ringo Kid's battle in the street. The cinematics are spectacular (especially for that time), and Ford's directing is flawless. There have been many, many Westerns since this one (a great deal of them starring John Wayne), but no Western has ever changed the face of the motion picture industry like Stagecoach did.

Format: DVD
STAGECOACH is a film that is great viewed once, but even better watched repeatedly. Although the story it tells is a simple one, it is told in a deceptively simple manner. In fact, it is a heavily nuanced, deeply complex film, and it is only on repeated viewings that the complexity is revealed. For instance, if one rewatches the film focusing on just one element, such as the physical distance and placement of each character throughout the film, one realizes the degree to which John Ford is the master of his craft. This is one of those rare films that, if watched frequently enough, shows you how films are constructed and made. In fact, "Masterpiece" is almost too weak a word for a work of this quality. It is almost more "Blueprint" for future films than merely a Masterpiece.
STAGECOACH is sometimes regarded as a John Wayne vehicle, but nothing could be further from the truth. He does manage a stunning debut in an "A" picture (his extensive previous work had been in "B" oaters), but this is an ensemble picture, the strength of the film deriving from the performances of a number of important characters, and not from the performance of merely one. Had Wayne been great, but John Carradine and Donald Meek and Berton Churchill and Andy Devine and Thomas Mitchell not turned in equally as compelling performances, STAGECOACH would have been only a shadow of the film it is. Although this is not a John Wayne vehicle, he does benefit from two visually stunning moments. The first is the marvelous close up when we see the Ringo Kid for the first time. The second is his dive to the ground at the end of the film as he takes on his enemies.
STAGECOACH is a nearly flawless film. The cinematography is extraordinary.
