"Red-Blooded DRAMA !"


  • Director: John Ford
  • Genre: Western, Action & Adventure, Classics,
  • Studio: 20th Century Fox
  • Subtitled | Duration: 120 Mins

One of the most beautiful and distinguished achievements of early colour, this fine movie tends to be overlooked among the other highlights of Hollywood's annus mirabilis - in 1939, every studio seemed to be unveiling a movie classic a fortnight. This is effectively a pre-western, dealing with tribal raids among the early settlers during the American War of Independence. It also contains a rather disturbing anti-British bias, not for the first time from ace director John Ford, who was himself of Irish stock. Taken as a romantic action adventure, though, it rattles along. Claudette Colbert seems just a little too well groomed for the frontier, but Henry Fonda, as ever, is perfectly at home and a constant pleasure to watch.
