Classic Western

on 6/5/2012

I'm not a huge fan of westerns, but I greatly enjoyed this one when I first saw it in film class. John Wayne gives a great performance here as a man searching for his niece. He spends 5 years looking after she is kidnapped by Native Americans (as we refer to them today).

Product Overview

Working together for the 12th time, John Wayne and director John Ford forged The Searchers into an indelible image of the frontier and the men and women who challenged it. Wayne plays ex-Confederate soldier Ethan Edwards, a believer more in bullets than in words. He's seeking his niece, captured by Comanches who massacred his family. He won't surrender to hunger, thirst, the elements or loneliness. And in his obsessive, five-year quest, Ethan encounters something he didn't expect to find: his own humanity.Running Time: 119 min.Format: BLU-RAY DISC

Reviews
ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review John Ford's ''The Searchers'' contains scenes of magnificence, and one of John Wayne's best performances. There are shots that are astonishingly beautiful. A cover story in New York magazine called it the most influential movie in American history. And yet at its center is a difficult question, because the Wayne character is racist without apology--and so, in a less outspoken way, are the other white characters. Is the film intended to endorse their attitudes, or to dramatize and regret them? Today we see it through enlightened eyes, but in 1956 many audiences accepted its harsh view of Indians.
