    Superb Restoration of A Classic Film

    Criterion's Blu-ray/DVD release of John Ford's classic western is by far the best transfer available, miles ahead of Warner's release of several years ago. The overall picture is sharper, contrast is excellent and the sound blows the previous releases out of the water. The restoration work done on this film is exemplary, and those who complain about imperfections and scratches found in this new transfer are missing the point: This edition has a great film-like texture and those who worked on this restoration decided to keep some imperfections in the new print as opposed to "cleaning it up", the result being that "Stagecoach" looks as it's supposed to look : a real film. As for the movie, 70 plus years has not dimmed this production's superb attributes: brilliant direction, great ensemble acting, an involving story, beautifully lit interiors , magnificent outdoor cinematography (highlighting Director Ford's beloved Monument Valley) and a stirring music score. Released in 1939, that golden year of Hollywood classics, "Stagecoach" deserves its landmark status as the first truly great sound western.

    Simply one of the best films ever

    You probably already know that this is the film that made John Wayne a star. And John Wayne fans will love it. It's a seminal Western. But Stagecoach also offers drop-dead beautiful visuals, deftly drawn characters and a suspenseful conclusion. There's a reason director John Ford is known as one of cinema's greats!

    John Ford and John Wayne from the beginning.

    What can I possibly say that hasn't been said a thousand times before about this film. It is historical. In its simplicity, the West and all of the diverse characters are brought to life as only Ford could do. The majestic backdrop of the grandeur of Monument Valley was the icing on the cake. The likes of this kind of cinematography is indeed the foundation for the success of all subsequent films. It has the Academy Awards to prove it.
