She Wore a Yellow Ribbon Reviews
June 23, 2020
In She Wore a Yellow Ribbon [John Wayne] is nothing short of superb. It is a performance that should, in all right, be a challenger for the Academy award.

The film boasts one of Ford's more uncommon storylines and some of his boldest uses of color cinematography.

This earned an Oscar for Best Cinematography, though had a Best Makeup award existed back then, surely Don Cash would have been a contender for superb work that allowed a then-41-year-old Wayne to convincingly pass for someone a quarter-century older.

Classic Western with glorious color, great story telling and an anti-war point of view.

The second of John Ford's cavalry trilogy is well acted by John Wayne and well shot by Winton C. Hoch, who an Oscar for color cinematography.

Definitely in top five of all-time Ford/Wayne westerns. Gorgeous color too.

A film of both elegiac sentiment and occasionally over-eloquent sentimentality.

John Wayne, John Ford, and Monument Valley in glorious color. What more can you ask for in a western?

Bulwarked with gay and spirited music and keyed to the colors of the plains, "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" is a dilly of a cavalry picture. Yeehooooo!
