Please make available the third movie in the John Ford Triology ... Rio Grande! You have the soudtrack, why not the movie?
Great to have this film in itune's, truly a classic Wayne film. Now let's get "Rio Bravo, The Quiet Man & Fort Apache!"
One of the trilogy of calvary movies (Fort Apache, Rio Grande, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon) directed by John Ford. Only in Fort Apache, though, is John Wayne more of a supporting actor, that time to Henry Fonda. All three are typical of Ford Westerns, plenty of great characters, an engaging story and very entertaining. She Wore a Yellow Ribbon was the only one of the three filmed in color. Ted Turner tried to colorize Rio Grande once, but what a mistake. This story centers around Wayne's character of Captain Nathan Brittles and the last patrol before his retirement, which occurs just after the Custer masacre. Veteran actor and Ford favorite Victor McLaglen once again plays the Irish sergeant, who's also retiring in the story. Other actors that Ford liked for his Westerns also appear, John Agar and Harry Carey, Jr. are great as two buck lieutenants. My favorite part of John Ford movies, though, is the cinematography. Just like The Searchers, this one is filmed in Utah, Monument Valley specifically, near Four Corners (If you ever get a chance, it's a beautiful part of the country to visit.). Ford was wonderful at filming Western scenery and the wide open spaces.
