Description
John Ford's Stirring Ode to Frontier Heroism.

The soldiers at Fort Apache may disagree with the tactics of their glory-seeking new commander. But to a man, they're duty-bound to obey - even when it means almost certain disaster.

John Wayne, Henry Fonda and many familiar supporting players from master director John Ford's "stock company" saddle up for the first film in the director's famed cavalry trilogy (She Wore a Yellow Ribbon and Rio Grande are the others). Roughhouse camaraderie, sentimental vignettes of frontier life, massive action sequences staged in Monument Valley - all are part of Fort Apache. So is Ford's exploration of the West's darker side. Themes of justice, heroism and honor that Ford would revisit in later Westerns are given rein in this moving, thought-provoking film that, even as it salutes a legend, gives reasons to question it.

      We added this movie to our western movie collection. We are huge John Wayne fans and enjoy most of his films. Henry Fonda played an unlikable character which is unfortunate, but he played the part well.

        This is a movie that you can enjoy the popcorn and family on a rainy night. John Wayne is our favorite actor of all times - just wish we had even more of his films. Story was great, scenery was awesome -just wish it had been in color.

              Well first off, I am a HUGE FAN of John Wayne's...my best childhood memories are of my Mom and I watching old John Wayne movies, and this one is just ONE of the "many great" Wayne movies. All of the characters in this movie are very fascinating. If you too are a fan of the Duke's, then don't hesitate, because I don't think you will be disappointed.
