Rio Grande

For a film that was made just so John Ford could make his passion project, The Quiet Man, its not bad, in fact its quite good. It features the duo from that later film, and once again Wayne and O'Hara have strong chemistry as they realize both the conflict and love between their characters so well in each film. Ford himself really thrives with the Calvary pictures that devote time to the individual men. You always really get a sense of the relationships and interplay just within the camps. I have to honestly say the action is often the least interesting parts of these films. It works best just so well realizing the interactions and atmosphere of the military camp.
