What is the movie The Searchers about?
“The Searchers” is a 1956 American western directed by john ford and starring John Wayne. Even though it received no Academy Awards nominations in the year of its release, it is now widely considered a masterpiece. American Film Institute ranked it the best western ever made, and the film ranks high on the 100 greatest American films of all time lists. It tells the tale of Ethan Edwards (Wayne), a middle aged Texan with a shady, troubled past who comes home from the Civil War. In a subsequent attack by the Comanche Indians, his brother’s wife and son are killed among others, and his niece Debbie (Natalie Wood) is taken prisoner. Ethan and his brother’s adoptive son Martin (Jeffrey Hunter) set out on a quest to bring her home, the quest spanning several years and two different countries. After many years, many miles traveled and many adventures that saw Ethan and Martin barely walking away with their lives intact, they find Debbie living with the Indians as one of the wives of the Comanche chief. Surprisingly, Debbie sends them away telling them she is Comanche now, which infuriates Ethan who tries to kill her. Both wounded, Ethan and Martin manage to escape and come home, and after some time has passed they get another lead on Debbie’s current location, setting up one final attempt of bringing her home.

This was a great movie. The reason is not just because of John Wayne starring in it, but because it had a great plot and some wonderful drama in it. John Ford is probably the best director of all time and this movie is just one reason why.

All that was best about John Wayne especially in this film where it is long on action and short on dialogue, letting the visual scenes in the film tell the story. Would the theme of the film in the present day climate be politically correct for criticism for the racial overtones towards Scar and Indians in general or would it be acceptable to say that this movie in a subtle way would be fine and allowed to be made. As this film stars John Wayne, who in his personal life never gave the impression of being like his character in the Searchers that of being a racist, the movie must surely be accepted as what it is, great entertainment and to be just that.
