John Wayne had previously appeared in some 80 "B" pictures; most studio executives were vehemently opposed to putting him in a major film, but Ford (whose first ''sound'' Western this was to be) insisted on casting Wayne as the Ringo Kid. (Notably, the actor was paid far less than any of his co-stars except for Creator/JohnCarradine.) Ford, well known for abusing his cast and crew, reportedly brutalized Wayne to screw an effective performance out of him -- and succeeded. This film also marked the first time that Ford would shoot in [[SceneryPorn Monument Valley, Utah]], the site that would become his favorite setting and almost a trademark of his films.

'''''Stagecoach''''' is a classic 1939 [[TheWestern Western]] directed by the legendary Creator/JohnFord, and Creator/JohnWayne's first major role. The story involves a disparate group of travelers--a prostitute (Claire Trevor), an alcoholic doctor (veteran character actor Thomas Mitchell), a pregnant army wife, a fugitive under arrest (Wayne), and others--who all wind up on the same stagecoach traveling from Tonto, Arizona Territory to Lordsburg, New Mexico Territory. Besides having their own secrets, burdens, and crimes to deal with, they have to worry about Geronimo and the Apaches, who are on the warpath.
