Hate to sound like an echo but The Searchers followed By Liberty Valence. John Wayne was at his best in the searchers, he was just plain mean!

John Ford is the greatest film director of all time.  Not every film of his was a classic, but he is a master.

His greatest western is either THE SEARCHERS or MY DARLING CLEMENTINE.  Too close to call.  There are many other greats too.

Any opinions on DONOVAN'S REEF?  It's certainly not brilliant, but it's one that I always love watching.  It has the type of male camaraderie you usually see in Hawks films, but in a strange very laid back way.

"The Alamo" was my favorite movie when I was like eight.  I still like it a bit, it's very fun though I don't think it's a great film anymore.  One of Wayne's best performances IMO, Richard Widmark and Laurence Harvey were great too.

One of my favourite westerns at all is "Fort Apache" directed by John Ford. Uncut! 123 mins.
A very good movie with excellent Actors like Victor McLaglen, Ward Bond, John Wayne and Henry Fonda.
I love the first scene with that two stagecoach men. Men like make a good western. This movie starts, you see them and you have at the moment the right western feeling.

I am glad someone mentioned Fort Apache! I love that movie. I should watch it again soon; I've only seen it once, and it was a few years ago

4 men walk into a bar:

First guy says, "4 beers, Mr. Bartender."
Second guy, "and I'll have the same, sir."


I just love that line   Grin

There are 6 Ford Westerns that I love: Stagecoach, My Darling Clementine, Fort Apache, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, The Horse Soldiers, and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

Stagecoach wins for me. I hadn't seen it when this thread was last active.
