The Searchers at AFI

THE SEARCHERS is perhaps John Ford's greatest film, and frequently cited as among the greatest films of all time. Along with RED RIVER, John Wayne's performance here ranks as his most complex, combining a commanding authority with darkest obsessions. Wayne's anti-hero Ethan Edwards is implacable in his efforts to track down the Indians who massacred his brother's family and took young niece Debbie hostage. Jeffrey Hunter, his adopted nephew and fellow searcher, is concerned that if they find Debbie, Ethan's intentions may be more murderous than merciful.

DIR John Ford; SCR Frank S. Nugent, from the novel by Alan Le May; PROD C. V. Whitney. US, 1956, color, 119 min. NOT RATED

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
