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

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.

Impossible to overstate the influence of Ford's magnificent film, generally considered to be the first modern Western.

John Ford has swept aside ten years of artifice and talkie compromise and has made a motion picture that sings a song of camera.
