About the Movie

This is where it all started. 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 Monument Valley) is Hollywood storytelling at its finest.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: John Ford has swept aside ten years of artifice and talkie compromise and has made a motion picture that sings a song of camera. – Frank S. Nugent, New York Times, Feb 10, 2012

Fresh: Directorially, production is John Ford in peak form, sustaining interest and suspense throughout, and presenting exceptional characterizations. Picture is a display of photographic grandeur. – Variety Staff, Variety, Feb 10, 2012

Fresh: Seen today, Stagecoach may not seem very original. That's because it influenced countless later movies in which a mixed bag of characters are thrown together by chance and forced to survive an ordeal. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Feb 10, 2012

Fresh: Its virtues remain intact. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Feb 10, 2012

Excellent western

Stagecoach is one of the greatest movies of the twentieth century. John Wayne is dynamite and so is the action!

Great movie, terrible print

The movie itself is a classic. However, the video includes scratches and flaws indicating that it was made from an old, beat-up print of the film.

I found that disappointing.

It's not rocket science to clean up those kinds of problems in transferring a film to digital format, but apparently the producer didn't care enough to do it.


Seriously 19.99 for a movie on blue ray thats msrp of 7.99. Is there a free market anymore? Want to curtail piracy? Lower the price of the product. Not hard
