She Wore A Yellow Ribbon (1949)
This memorable look at duty, devotion, and honor comes from director John Ford, and stars John Wayne as a middle-aged Cavalry captain who, on the eve of retirement, strives to forestall war between Indians and the army. His patrol is complicated by the presence of his commanding officer's wife and her niece--the "she" of the title bearing the wardrobe adornment that signifies a loved one fighting in Wayne's company. With Joanne Dru, Ben Johnson, and John Agar. 103 min. Standard; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital mono, French Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English, French, Portuguese, Spanish; home movies; theatrical trailer.
