"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.

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (2018) (746 movies items)

" Notes: First of all, this movie gives an interesting look on the settlers, these pioneers, who were finally starting to have a fairly ordinarily life but, at the same time, there was always the possibility of some swift burst of violence which could wipe them out within minutes. Then, you had this fascinating and complex main character, Ethan Edwards, who, maybe subconsciously, might never ever be able to settle with a farm and work on his land, and instead would rather spend 5 years roaming a"

"15.9. DVD Uusintakatselu. Hyvä esimerkki kriitikoiden pilaamasta elokuvasta sekä potentiaalin hukkaamisesta. Tarina on hyvä ja Waynen hahmo mielenkiintoinen, mutta elokuva kaikkinensa aivan keskeneräinen. Kun täyttää aukot mieluisakseen ja jatkaa itse siitä, mihin elokuva jäi, saadaan erinomainen elokuva. Koomiset kevennykset ja saippuadraama ovat paskaa. Visuaalisesti kaunis ja onhan tämä viihdyttävä. Jossain psykoosissa olin viime kerralla pisteyttänyt täysiin. Tässä jänn"

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"John Ford's epic, grim but visually beautiful Western 'The Searchers' is a film that has grown in critical stature over the years. In its tale of Ethan Edwards' (John Wayne) quest to locate his niece who has been kidnapped by the Comanche, critics have found complex, thoughtful, multilayered examinations of the kind of racism that is so readily identifiable in so many films of the Western genre. But many questions remain: was Ford's film acknowledging the complexity of its theme or simply appear"
