Stagecoach: The Criterion Collection

This is where it all started. John Ford's smash hit and enduring masterpiece Stagecoach revolutionized the western, elevating it from B movie to the A-list. The quintessential tale of a group of strangers thrown together into extraordinary circumstances - nine passengers traveling a dangerous route from Arizona to New Mexico - Stagecoach features outstanding performances from Hollywood stalwarts Claire Trevor (Key Largo; Murder, My Sweet), John Carradine (Drums Along the Mohawk, The Grapes of Wrath), Thomas Mitchell (Make Way for Tomorrow, It's a Wonderful Life), and, of course, John Wayne (The Searchers, Rio Bravo), in his first starring role for Ford, as the daredevil outlaw the Ringo Kid. Superbly shot and tightly edited, Stagecoach (Ford's first trip to Monument Valley) is Hollywood storytelling at its finest.
