Restored widescreen Western, considered by critics as one of the best films ever made.  Troubled John Wayne hunts for his kidnapped niece.  The film’s complex, deeply-nuanced themes include racism, individuality, the American character, and the opposition between civilization and the untamed frontier wilderness.

The greatest Hollywood film that few people have seen.”  (Glenn Frankel)
