One of the most beautiful Technicolor movies ever made (famous for the lightning storm cinematographer Winton Hoch captured in Monument Valley), She Wore a Yellow Ribbon marked the sixth collaboration between actor John Wayne and director John Ford. Together, the two men popularized a particular vision of American history as a chronicle of white settlers in the American West, although the questions Ford raises about what’s problematic in his perspective remain rigorous, complex, and surprising nearly half a century after his death. Indeed, the case could be made (and I’m happy to make it) that Ford was the medium’s most skilled and artistic practitioner: a great craftsman and a great humanist. All of Ford’s many films attest to his mastery but She Wore a Yellow Ribbon belongs among the best of them.
 
The thirteenth in a series of historically significant (and always entertaining) film classics, screened every other weekend throughout the semester.
 
Free and open to all UNM students.
