DIRECTOR: JOHN FORD

CAST: JOHN WAYNE, JOANNE DRU, BEN JOHNSON, HARRY CAREY, JR. , VICTOR MCLAGLEN

Shot in ravishing Technicolor in Monument Valley, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon is a film of almost supernal beauty, its compositions inspired by the Western canvases of Frederic Remington. Community was perhaps Ford’s primary recurring theme, and the military a favorite setting to explore it—here it’s through the trials of aging Capt. Nathan Brittles (John Wayne) and his men (Ford stock players Ben Johnson, Harry Carey, Jr., and Victor McLaglen), trying to ward off bloody conflict with the Cheyenne and Arapaho.
