« back to classes page
Beginning in 1948, John Ford and John Wayne produced three movies that became known as the Cavalry Trilogy:  Fort Apache, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, and Rio Grande. In 1959 Ford and Wayne were at it again, producing The Horse Soldiers, a Civil War epic based on historical events that occurred in 1863. We will watch these films after reviewing the background stories of their production, historical accuracy, and cast profiles. Popcorn provided.
