...a thoughtful ensemble examination of grace (and lack of grace) under stress.

Seen today, Stagecoach may not seem very original. That's because it influenced countless later movies in which a mixed bag of characters are thrown together by chance and forced to survive an ordeal.

Stagecoach is not just one of the greatest and most influential Westerns ever made; it's also a template for the ensemble film.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A particularly special entry in Ford's already lengthy career... his first absolutely perfect movie.

[VIDEO] Orson Welles famously said he watched "Stagecoach" 40 times before he made "Citizen Kane." It's easy to see why.

Some movies are watershed films, taking a debased genre and reinventing it on a higher level -- films like Birth of a Nation, The Kid, Citizen Kane, The Godfather... and John Ford's Stagecoach.

Directorially, production is John Ford in peak form, sustaining interest and suspense throughout, and presenting exceptional characterizations. Picture is a display of photographic grandeur.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

A true classic. Despite most of the characters being archtypes, Ford has created a Western setting in which we get involved in the lives of these people; Wayne is sincere in his first major role, and Carradine almost steals the show as the gambler. Claire

Criterion Collection's two-disc set... [is] a small film-school education, through the copious supplementary materials, on how the film broke new ground, why it remains so important today...

John Ford's classic western is a landmark of the genre for so many reasons: mature, classically constructed and superbly directed, it made a star of John Wayne...
