Description

Working together for the 12th time, John Wayne and director John Ford forged The Searchers into an indelible image of the frontier and the men and women who challenged it. Wayne plays ex-Confederate soldier Ethan Edwards, a believer more in bullets than in words. He's seeking his niece, captured by Comanches who massacred his family. He won't surrender to hunger, thirst, the elements or loneliness. And in his obsessive, five-year quest, Ethan encounters something he didn't expect to find: his own humanity.

    Unfortunately, the film is presented in 16:9 aspect ratio and doesn’t do this beautiful film any justice. :(
  • Why only in Full Screen?

    My favorite John Wayne film. This is a powerful story with excellent acting by the entire cast. On my top five list of western films.

    Classic. Epic. Patient. Furious. Driving. Intense. Passionate. Angry. Timed. Vengeful. In a word, perfect. Arguably the best John Ford directed western, with John "the Duke" Wayne spear-heading this powerful locomotive of a movie. Takes its time and gets it right on the money. There's never too much to say about this film. And Duke Wayne is just fierce under John Ford's genius. Take notes, boys and girls. Is it the greatest American western film of all time? Quite possibly... A true force to be reckoned with.
  • Thank You..

    One of the Best Movies I have ever seen. I so enjoy watching all the older Classic Films. This film shows that justice can and will prevail, when the determination is strong enough. Thank you for making this film available.
  • HD buy?

    Certainly one of the best Westerns ever filmed and the cinematography is stunning. I'm happy to see it in HD for rent, but I'd pay $19.99 in a heartbeat to buy it!
