News & Interviews for Wagon Master
Critic Reviews for Wagon Master
Wagon Master is a good outdoor action film, done in the best John Ford manner. That means careful character development and movement, spiced with high spots of action, good drama and leavening comedy moments
Cinematographer Bert Glennon comes up with a number of impressive artistic compositions, although the film's biggest treat is seeing Ben Johnson given the opportunity to show off his sly charm and easygoing demeanor.
Ford considered it among his personal favorites, and a handful of Ford's biggest admirers consider it a neglected masterpiece. (I do too.)
It's as gentle and warm a film as [John Ford] ever made and it follows a classic Ford theme: the creation of a community in the west...
Audience Reviews for Wagon Master
Sometimes you just need a Western - imagining yourself being Ben Johnson for a couple hours. Simple and good.
Simple, elegant and controlled.
