A buried Classic John Wayne Western from 1939 has been discovered in the KCLS catalog. The movie is the famous "Stagecoach" staring not only John Wayne, but also Claire Trevor, Thomas Mitchell and one of the best western character actors in Andy Devine. KCLS has only one copy of this great western and it isn't even taken out. Fellow patrons, Stagecoach received 2 Academy awards. Thomas Mitchell was Best Supporting Actor and the film score won as well. Director John Ford filmed the movie in the spectacular Monument Valley in Utah. The stagecoach follows actual stagecoach routes and is a study of the 9 passengers on the stagecoach. It is a thrilling ride due to the fact that they are in Apache territory. This being the 75 Anniversary since its release, we should all be thankful that such a wonderful movie is available. If you haven't seen Stagecoach, then you have missed one of the finest Western movies ever made. As always, I would love to hear your reaction to the movie.

I like all these comments people have posted. Also enjoy Thomas Mitchell in one of my favorite Oscar winning performances.

A classic 1930s Western; Classic John Wayne. So many movies were influenced by this one - there were several stunts that you can see were re-done in Raiders of the Lost Ark

A classic that's a must-watch. A courageous story of Dignity, Honor, and Chivalry.

This is where it all started. John Wayne and John Ford's first collaboration, the beginning of respectability for westerns, and the start of showing many directors "here's how to tell a movie western without it being a big lot of shots of guys running around or shooting each other dead in the street: you have to have a story!"

Excellent set-up of the basic premise and who is whom (probably the influence of un-credited Ben Hecht, who was a master at that sort of thing), as well as characterization that is clear and simple without being predicable and simplistic. Solid questions of morality, as well as what in life *ought* to be priorities instead of what is *thought* to be a priority.

When used as a template, this film can be used to tell any story by replacing the elements with an equivalent one.

And hey! John Wayne actually can act!

Cowboys. Indians. Calvary. Mexicans. Gunslingers. Floozies. This film has it all! It even has some unexpected twists and turns. A great Western!

This is still one of the greatest westerns to ever grace a cinema screen. The indian attack, the cavalry to the rescue, the drunken doctor, the bar room floozie with a heart of gold, the gambler, and the hero doing "what a man's got to do" and escaping without a scratch . All the ingredients and more of a classic western but done superbly. Not a scene overplayed, not a shot wasted. Great classic John Wayne movie, a must see.
