Synopsis: 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—traveling a dangerous route from Arizona to New Mexico—STAGECOACH features outstanding performances from Hollywood stalwarts Claire Trevor, John Carradine, Thomas Mitchell, and, of course, John Wayne, 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.
