1962 / 123min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: JOHN FORD

CAST: JAMES STEWART, JOHN WAYNE, VERA MILES, LEE MARVIN

The great lawyer-politician who delivered statehood to the territory, Ransom Stoddard (James Stewart) returns from the capital to attend a funeral for the forgotten hero of the frontier days, Tom Doniphan (John Wayne). Francis Ford had died in 1953 but he was still on John’s mind, and Stoddard’s story of a forgotten
hero may be a tribute to brother Francis, another lost hero of another frontier: the movies before sound, before Hollywood itself.
