She Wore a Yellow Ribbon


Dutiful cavalry officer Nathan Brittles (John Wayne) is reluctant to retire in the face of an imminent Native American uprising. His last official task is to escort the commander's wife and her niece to the Sudrow's Wells stagecoach stop, but it proves to be a journey fraught with danger.

This film, the second in John Ford's cavalry trilogy, is a masterpiece of the cinema and is acclaimed as one of the greatest Westerns ever made.

I've seen this movie many times. It's beautifully shot and the story around Wayne's character holds together believably and well. Its a real classic of its time.
