They Must Be Destroyed On Sight!


TMBDOS! Episode 111: “Stagecoach” (1939).

December 25th, 2017


Lee and Dan are continuing down the classic western film trail with what many consider to be the film that really breathed new life into, and also elevated the western genre from 'B' grade to 'A'. This episode it's John Ford's "Stagecoach" (1939). They talk about if it truly is a classic, how it made John Wayne a star, and the influences it had on films to come after it. Also covered: listener comments and what they've watched as of late.

Note: there were some audio issues when this was recorded. Lee has managed to edit around most of them, but at times the conversation might feel a tad disjointed, and a few sports of audio break-up might be heard. Sadly, it's also about ten minutes shorter than it originally was.
