Fantastic artwork from the Artist Morini for this 1960 re-release of the classic 1939 Western.
John Ford's landmark Western revolves around an assorted group of colorful passengers aboard the Overland stagecoach bound for Lordsburg, New Mexico, in the 1880s. An alcoholic philosophizer (Thomas Mitchell), a lady of ill repute (Claire Trevor) and a timid liquor salesman (Donald Meek) are among the motley crew of travelers who must contend with an escaped outlaw, the Ringo Kid (John Wayne), and the ever-present threat of an Apache attack as they make their way across the Wild West.
Stagecoach has been lauded as one of the most influential films ever made. Orson Wells argued that it was a perfect textbook of film-making and claimed to have watched it more than 40 times in preparation for the making of Citizen Kane. In 1995, the film was deemed ‘ culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant ’ by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in their National Film Registry.
