More Info

An unfailingly evocative, dramatic use of popular themes has always characterised Ford’s sound-tracks...the columns of cavalry, the wagon trains, the galloping riders move across the vast Western landscapes to tunes whose compulsive beat reinforces the zest, exhilaration and spaciousness of the images; dances and sing-songs are enjoyed for their own sakes; moments of quiet feeling, of meditation or of death are given special tenderness by the songs which softly accompany them.
