Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The middle leg of the John Ford/John Wayne "Cavalry Trilogy" -- following Fort Apache (1948) and preceding Rio Grande (1950) -- gives Wayne the opportunity to prove his talents as an actor, and he doesn't disappoint. His sentimental performance lends the film an emotional center lacking in other of Ford's mythic Western struggles; the role remains one of the highlights of The Duke's career. Ford reportedly said he didn't know that Wayne could act until he saw him in Howard Hawks's Red River (1948). She Wore a Yellow Ribbon also features exceptional, Academy Award-winning camerawork by Winton Hoch, the cinematographer responsible for some of Ford's best-looking pictures.

    OUTSTANDING TRANSFER OF FORD/WAYNE CLASSIC

    ¿She Wore A Yellow Ribbon' is one of those glorious John Ford westerns that make a fable of history so galvanic that it becomes history by proxy. The film stars John Wayne as Capt. Nathan Cutting Brittles - a widower preparing to retire from service at an outpost with the United States cavalry. Into this mix comes the luscious Olivia Dandridge (Joanne Dru), the contested prize to be won by a pair of viral dandies in search of a bride. Like Ford¿s best westerns, this one has more melodrama than action, seemingly incorporating the western motif as mere background for a series of breathtakingly beautiful vistas filled with galloping horses, wide open spaces and the stunning and romantically stoic towers of Monument Valley. My hat off to the good people at Warner Home Video. This is a truly amazing looking DVD and one that should definitely be on every film buffs wish list to own. Colors are fully saturated, well balanced and incredibly life like. Contrast levels are on pitch as are black levels. There is a hint of edge enhancement and pixelization but really - it's just a hint. Chips, scratches and imperfections inherent in the original camera negative are kept to a bare, bare minimum. The audio is mono, as originally presented, but extremely well balanced, with low to non-existent background hiss in most scenes. There are NO extras, but highly recommended!

    John Ford Stock Company at its best.

    Traditional western. Nobody did/does them better than John Ford, John Wayne and the supporting cast that features more than a few familiar faces.

    Get it wright

    A minor point of trivia but there is a slight mis-statement by the previous reviewer:- It was'nt a gold watch but a silver watch that was presented to Captain Brittles. I think the point being made in the film being that despite the affection for the the captain the average cavalry man's salary could'nt stretch to a gold watch. There is a classic line, but don't quote me on this, that Brittles says '' The time by my brand new silver watch is'' etc. Overall the movie is a clasic and one that is well worth watching over again.
