The Searchers (1956) d: John Ford
It's no wonder why, even to this day, John Wayne is still one of the highest ranking stars even long after his death. He brings so much to the films he's in. To say he is an icon is an understatement. Some criticism has come his way that he always plays John Wayne. Perhaps. But no one plays John Wayne like John Wayne. No one has even come close. Although when people say that I always ask if they've seen 'The Quiet Man'. He is so amazing in that. Teaming he and John Ford together in any of their films was always magic. One of our greatest directors and no one knew how to capture the landscape of the west like John Ford. Want to be wowed? Check out the Blu-ray of 'The Searchers'. By the way, anything more fetching than Natalie Wood? If you said yes then you are dead to me.
