Reel Reviews – The Searchers

Reel Review #40: “Put an end to it! There’s no more time for praying!” A true classic. Watch as John Ford artfully directs what is probably John Wayne’s best role. Wayne’s portrayal of Ethan Edwards, a flawed man on a quest to find his niece, is arresting. It is time to see the film that is widely credited as being the inspiration for Taxi Driver and Paris, Texas.
