John Wayne's breakout performance in John Ford's 'Stagecoach.' (I love this poster for the movie as well.) John Ford was Orson Welles favorite movie director and apparently he watched 'Stagecoach' over 40 times before he made 'Citizen Kane.' I loved this movie. I find it incredible how smooth some of the transitions are between scenes, especially considering they edited the film by hand (haha I can't believe we've come to that point).
Anyways, I found this movie incredibly entertaining. John Ford is a master of composition and action. Watch it!
