Gorgeous Technicolor and a real quality blu-ray release from the folks at the Warner Archive Collection.
The film is a treat for John Wayne fans since it all revolves around him as he faces an exciting last week of service as Cavalry Captain Nathan Brittles before retirement. As a study of his character, it’s great. But in other areas it could use more rich character moments I’d expect from a Ford film. Two that stand out are a scene of surgery in a moving covered wagon and the “arrest” of McLaglen’s character.
