REVIEWS:





"John Ford...has made a motion picture that sings a song of camera.
It moves, and how beautifully it moves, across the plains of Arizona. ....
['Stagecoach'] is a movie of the grand old school, a genuine rib-thumper
and a beautiful sight to see. .... [Ford's] players have taken easily to
their chores, all the way down the list. .... They've all done nobly by a
noble horse opera, but none so nobly as its director. This is
one stagecoach that's powered by a Ford."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; March 3, 1939







"Stagecoach holds our attention effortlessly and is paced with
the elegance of a symphony. .... [John] Wayne is the hero of the
film, but not an 'action hero.' He was manifestly a bad man...but
he never suggests evil, and seems prepared to be taken to prison
even though he has many opportunities to escape. .... We see here
Wayne's extraordinary physical grace and capacity for tenderness,
and understand why [Director John] Ford later cast him as 'The Quiet
Man.' .... Within 'Stagecoach'...beats a humanitarian heart: None of
the occupants of the coach is taken for granted or dismissed casually.
They are all given full weight in their mutual dependence.
This is a very civilized Western."

-- Roger Ebert; August 1, 2011
