He had to find her...
An epic, morally complex Technicolour adventure, The Searchers is legendary Western director John Ford’s most famous and influential film. John Wayne is loner antihero Ethan Edwards, a former Confederate soldier who returns to his brother's frontier cabin three years after the end of the Civil War. When his niece (Natalie Wood) is captured by Comanches, he sets off with his half-Indian nephew Martin on a bitter and relentless five-year search for the girl and for Scar (Henry Brandon), the fearsome chief who abducted her.

This is true masterpiece from the old master John Ford. The landscape is beautifully shot. John Wayne is amazing when he tries to find his neice who are captured by American Indians. John Wayne's character you either love him or hate him. This changed the idea of how great a western could be. It is one of the most influential films ever made. John Ford was a master of the western and so many other great films.
