[The Western Ford and Hawks. No. 1]( Visual )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Wagon Master (1950) mythologises the movement of white civilization westwards in the celebration of community which, along with My Darling Clementine, marks a creative midpoint of Ford's career with a classical balance between the optimistic and dark sides of his vision. While Ford's West is firmly located in community and history, Hawks' West is an abstract, timeless stage for the playing out of the ethos of the disparate group acting together out of mutual respect. More than ever in Rio Lobo (1970), Hawks' last film, this is a closed world, outside a sense of history, almost in a vacuum
