ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review Rio Grande is another John Wayne classic film or a long by-gone era. The third in a trilogy of US Cavalry pictures by John Ford (Fort Apache and She Wore A Yellow Ribbon), this film embodies all that was good about the US Cavalry including such chest-thumping themes as duty and honor. This is also the first of many joint screen appearances by Wayne and Maureen O'Hara, and they are wonderful together...The image here is absolutely terrific. The original black and white, full frame picture is completely grain-free. Blacks are deep and dark and contrast is just right, both in bright daylight and in black, low-lit night scenes...This is as good a black and white transfer as I have seen from a film this old...Another John Wayne film I will not soon forget. As I have said before, I was never a fan of The Duke. Probably because my grandmother (may she rest in peace) was. I was probably just a rebellious little jerk, disagreeing with anything anyone in authority ever said to me (as if that has changed today--yeah right). Maybe I should have listened more and talked less when I was a child.
