The Searchers
The Searchers


Ultimate Edition Dvd:


It's the definitive role for John Wayne as an icon of the classic Western--the hero (or antihero) who must stand alone according to the unwritten code of the West.

The story takes place in Texas in 1868; Wayne plays Ethan Edwards, a Confederate veteran who visits his brother and sister-in-law at their ranch and is horrified when they are killed by marauding Comanches. Ethan's search for a surviving niece becomes an all-consuming obsession. With the help of a family friend who is himself part Cherokee, Ethan hits the trail on a five-year quest for revenge.

At the peak of his masterful talent, director Ford crafts this classic tale as an embittered examination of racism and blind hatred, provoking Wayne to give one of the best performances of his career.
