John Ford’s smash hit and enduring masterpiece, "Stagecoach" revolutionized the Western, elevating it from B movie to the A-list and establishing the genre as we know it today. The quintessential tale of a group of strangers thrown together into extraordinary circumstances, "Stagecoach" features outstanding performances from Hollywood stalwarts Claire Trevor, John Carradine, and 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 what would become his beloved Monument Valley) is Hollywood storytelling at its finest.

23 x 33 inches, non-archivally mounted on board. Light rubbing and soil, pulling slightly from one corner. Very Good plus overall.
