Dir. John Ford. 1950, 86 mins. 35mm. With Harry Carey, Jr., Ben Johnson, Joanne Dru.One of his most personal and poetic films, Wagon Master was the western that Ford said “came closest to what I hoped to achieve.” The story about a Mormon wagon-train expedition across Utah that joins up with a traveling medicine show and then a group of outlaws is bathed in gentle nostalgia and warm comedy.
