Dir. John Ford. 1956, 119 mins. New restoration on DCP. With John Wayne, Jeffrey Hunter, Vera Miles, Ward Bond, Natalie Wood. Its epic story sweeps from the American Southwest to the Canadian border as it tracks Wayne's increasingly unhinged quest for his beloved niece, kidnapped by Chief Scar in a raid years before. Wayne's Ethan Edwards is as neurotically obsessed as DeNiro's Travis Bickle.
