"Figure a man's only good for one oath at a time; I took mine to the Confederate States of America."

John Ford and John Wayne forged one of the greatest director-actor partnerships in cinematic history. Their collaborations are now frequently regarded as classic additions to the Western genre; from Stagecoach to The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance to over 10 other titles...memorable ce... read more

if John Ford is the greatest Western director, The Searchers is arguably his greatest film, at once a grand outdoor spectacle like such Ford classics as She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949) and Rio Grande (1950) and a film about one man's troubling moral codes, a big-screen adventure of the 1950s that anticipated the complex themes and characters that would dominate the 1970s. John Wayne plays Ethan Ed... read more

Ethan Edwards, returned from the Civil War to the Texas ranch of his brother, hopes to find a home with his family and to be near the woman he obviously but secretly loves. But a Comanche raid destroys these plans, and Ethan sets out, along with his 1/8 Indian nephew Martin, on a years-long journey to find the niece kidnapped by the Indians under Chief Scar. But as the quest goes on, Martin begins to realize that his uncle's hatred for the Indians is beginning to spill over onto his now-assimilated niece. Martin becomes uncertain whether Ethan plans to rescue Debbie...or kill her.

Nick's Top 100 Films (100 movies items)

""The films central character, Ethan Edwards... is so detached from society that he is more associated with the Western landscape or what the film calls 'the turning of the earth'. He has been alone too long and has almost become inhuman. His search for a niece, kidnapped by Indians, is fired by rage and racism." - Mark Cousins"
