365 Day Movie Challenge (2014) - #129: Stagecoach (1939) - dir. John Ford
This classic Western stars some of my favorite famous faces: Claire Trevor, John Wayne, Andy Devine (also one of my favorite voices), John Carradine (perhaps looking more like John Hawkes here than ever), Thomas Mitchell, George Bancroft, Donald Meek, Tim Holt, Tom Tyler, Jack Pennick (an uncredited bartender - once you’ve seen his teeth, you don’t forget them). The film is excellently directed by John Ford and photographed very nicely by Bert Glennon, especially in the climactic stagecoach/Native Americans/shootout scene (which also benefits from the editing by Otho Lovering and Dorothy Spencer). If you are as fascinated by John Ford’s visions of America as I am, then you definitely should see this film.
