I saw this with my friends when I was a kid - we went around quoting Old Mose, whom we all loved - "Thank you for those kind words." - it did not matter he was somewhat crazed; that made him all the more sympathetic and loveable. I don't know how much we liked the movie otherwise because it is not totally action-packed. Having seen it now, as an adult, I see that John Ford (and, perhaps John Wayne) had other concerns: racism, sexism, political intransigence, the concept of family, and the loner. This movie, set in Texas but obviously filmed (beautifully) in Monument Valley, is more about character. And the possibility of change. And, perhaps, the impossibility of change; or, the shattering of growth by an overwhelming sense of loss (Wayne's character: the war, and the woman). Ford is a master director - I recommend watching the Special Feature in which the movie is explained, showing all the incredible framing of shots, the backlighting, the pacing of shots.... Aw, just watch it and forget any prejudices you have against John Wayne. It is a beauty.The Searchers

In this western the DUKE plays a darker role, more out for vengeance than justice. Still, we are entertained as the Duke searches for a young relative taken by Indians. During the search of many years, his vengeance is worn down until he finally locates her and returns her home. This is a good family movie that tells a sad part of the American western history.

Touted as one of the most popular, yet understated western movies starring John Wayne. I enjoyed the sweeping panoramas and the epic feel; however, John Wayne is not academy material. Not recommended unless a diehard Wayne fan.

It's easy to see why The Searchers is so high on so many "best of" lists. The appreciation special feature helps put the film in its cultural context. The Blu-ray image is, of course, a joy to watch, and the beauty of Monument Valley shines through. The real surprise is how pleasant the "Behind the Camera" features are. They were originally fillers for the WB Television programs, but they have a life of their own as contemporary making of features. And for Star Trek fans, watching Jeffrey Hunter is a surprise.

Format: DVD
A fantastic movie and a true classic - and certainly one that really shines when presented in its true widescreen aspect ratio. That said, SHAME on Warner Brothers for butchering this issue with a "imitation" widescreen format (hence my 1-star rating). The packaging claims both Standard format and "matted" widescreen are on the dvd - the latter (at least for WB) means that they take the (already width-cropped) standard screen version and simply [take] huge strips off of the top and bottom of the picture to make the shape approximately 1:85:1 (so an HDTV format screen is filled, no doubt). The result is that when watching this "widescreen" version, one is seeing far less picture than even in the Standard format! I have verified this by comparing the two dvd sides (one standard, the other "widescreen") to one another and to a true widescreen tape that I have. Those reviewers that have been raving about this widescreen presentation, have a look at the standard format side of the disk to see more of the movie ;-)
