By the time John Wayne starred in The Hurricane Express, he had already appeared in dozens of movies, mostly B-westerns, alongside such genre favorites as Buck Jones and Tim McCoy. His charisma and talent quickly made him one of the most popular screen cowboys of the 1930s, but it was his performance in John Ford's Stagecoach (1939) that made him a star. Wayne and Ford re-teamed several times over their careers, creating masterpieces which include The Quiet Man (1952), The Searchers (1956) and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962).
