I recently purchased the region 1 s/e that is shown in the above graphics and thought some one should give a review of the special features.They consist of a commentary by author,the life and times of john ford,Scott eyman,which is very informative and enjoyable,a new 84min documentary on ford/wayne parternership,which is excellent and a new 30min retrospective on the making of the movie,which unfortunately is narrated by scott eyman and therefore covers most of the same ground of the commentary.I hope this will help prospective buyers make up their minds about which edition to buy.I posted this because in so many movies the reviews seldom review the actual edition shown and it is hard to know which to buy.

Please note that the following review is for the Criterion US import Blu ray release. As is the case with all Criterion BDs this is region A locked meaning that you WILL need a multi region Blu ray player to view this. Unlike a handful of other Criterion titles the region coding cannot be bypassed on certain Panasonic models by pressing top menu on the mismatched region screen.

Iconic and genre defining, John Ford's legendary 1939 western Stagecoach is also fondly remembered as the first collaboration between Ford and his regular star player John Wayne beginning a partnership that would produce well over thirty movies including such favorites as The Searchers, Rio Grande and She Wore A Yellow Ribbon. Stagecoach was also Ford's first use of the infamous Monument Valley which spans the borders of Utah and Arizona, establishing possibly the most recognisable western landscape ever committed to celluloid which along with the Saguaro cactus became synonymous with the genre and immortalised for decades to come.
As there are countless reviews outlining the synopsis of Stagecoach I will avoid any lengthy breakdowns of what is a fairly standard western storyline concerning a colourful group of travellers who despite warnings of the ever present threat of Apache interference led by the ruthless war chief Geronimo all have their own personal reasons for making the treacherous journey from Tonto Arizona to Lordsburg New Mexico.

The classic western, Sfagecoach, launched John Wayne as a major screen star and was the first of 10 epic films Wayne and director, John Ford made together.The first of a new sophisticated type of western, it re-established the genre as a box office draw. The spectacular Monument Valley is the backdrop as the drama of the stagecoach journey unfolds. A party of misfits; a drunken doctor,woman of ill-repute,a card shark, a whiskey drummer and an ailing cavalry officer's wife are enroute to Lordsburg,across Apache territory. Geronimo has jumped the reservation and is on the warpath. John Waynes entrance to the film is one of his most memorable scenes, and the swinging of the winchester" so effctive, was improvised by him. The Ringo Kid, Wayne, has broken out of jail to avenge the murders of his brother and father. He hijacks the stage only to find the marshall riding shot gun. The simple plot is enhanced by the class conflict amongst the passengers and the thrilling action scenes directed by Ford. The long expected attack by the Apaches, provides the first extensive Indian chase in western history. Yakima Canutt delivered the daring stunts.As Wayne later said, no such chase could ever have happened as the Indians would have shot the lead horses and that would have been that.Holywood never let truth get in the wy of a good scene The cavalry save the day and Ringo gets his just deserves. As the Ringo Kid ,Wayne begins to develop the character which became his own. The "diamond in the Rough" the tough, loner exterior with the heart of gold. A man who did not judge others by their reputation but by their deeds and words. A true gentleman when others fail the test. He is gentle and protective towards women but not pushy, usually tongue and reticent.Read more ›

One of the great Westerns is done no justice by this dreadful Universal Pictures 2006 DVD release. This is such an important film, featuring one of cinema's most popular stars, that it deserves a proper restoration. Watch the astonishing Warner special editions of Casablanca and The Adventures Of Robin Hood to see what can be done with films from this era.

A group of seven strangers set off on a stagecoach to Lordsburg, New Mexico, along the way they pick up fugitive The Ringo Kid (John Wayne) whom has just escaped prison and is now tracking the people responsible for killing his own brother. Of course the story is made all that more interesting when they are informed Geronimo and his group of Apaches is on the loose in the area; but they go on anyway.

Stagecoach has one of the most unique storyline of any Western, it primarily dealing with the relationship of those on the journey. Contrasting personalities cause confrontations almost instantly, but it's the lingering fear of the Apaches inevitable attack that gives this film its greatest twist. The Apache attack on the Stagecoach is nothing short of superb, the cinematography, so unique at that time made this movie stand out from the rest, and still stands up today as an amazing action set piece. Back in 1939 danger was not a factor for stuntmen, which simply creates an authentic action scene rarely seen today.

Although I have already commented on the cinematography it definitely deserves another mention. Filmed on location in Monument Valley, Utah, one of John Fords many trademarks, the scenery is so stunning it deserves a second watch to take it all in.

Although John Wayne had starred in over 80 movies, it was his role in Stagecoach that catapulted him to movie stardom. He plays his role effortlessly as the "nice guy" he plays in most films, and you can never say he "overplays" a character. The rest of the cast are great in their various personas, but it's Claire Trevor who stands out as Dallas, a woman left bitter after being run out of town by the local females for her questionable behaviour.
