USA 1949 English (Colour); Western (RKO); 103 minutes (PG certificate)

Crew includes: John Ford (Director); Frank Nugent, Laurence Stallings (Screenwriters); John Ford, Merian C. Cooper (Producers)

Cast includes: John Wayne, Joanne Dru, John Agar, Ben Johnson, Harry Carey, Jr., Victor McLaglen, Mildred Natwick, George O'Brien, Arthur Shields

Academy Award: Cinematography - Colour

The final mission of a retiring cavalry captain (Wayne) is complicated by his being tasked to deliver to safety his commanding officer's wife and her niece (Dru), the latter a distraction for two rival army lieutenants.

Playing 20 years older (he was 41), one of Wayne's more affecting performances; McLaglen memorable as a drunken sergeant.

A Monument in Motion.

Wayne turns in one of his finest patriarchal performances as aging Calvary Captain sent on final mission with little hope of success. Vivid cinematography is accented by a golden shimmer as warm as the characters in the story. A bit simplistic, but none the less effective. Like watching a monument come to life.

An Excellent John Wayne Western

After the defeat of General Custer at the Little Big Horn several American army posts have been placed under full alert as various tribes have begun harassing everybody in their immediate area. One case in particular involves Fort Starke which has come under intense scrutiny by the Cheyenne who have migrated further south than usual. As a result, rather than keeping his wife and daughter at the army post the commanding officer, "Major Mac Allshard" (George O'Brien) decides to send them with a cavalry patrol further east where they will be safe. On their way, however, they encounter an Arapaho column heading in the same direction and as a result make a detour around them which causes the two female passengers to miss the last stagecoach out. And then the hostilities begin. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was an excellent Western movie which benefits from the beautiful scenery and the on-screen charisma exhibited by John Wayne (as Captain Nathan Brittles) along with several other good actors in supporting roles. To that end, I believe that those who enjoy a film of this type might want to check this one out as it is definitely worth a view.
