#038 - Star Wars Film School - The Searchers
This week, we are bringing you another installment of Star Wars Film School. Since no film or franchise emerges out of a cultural vacuum, we think it’s worthwhile to take a look at some of the films and filmmakers who inspired and continue to breathe life into our beloved galaxy far, far away. This episode is dedicated to the legendary director John Ford, and specifically his 1956 masterpiece, The Searchers. This film is but one of the director’s many collaborations with John Wayne, and The Searchers is centered around his character, Ethan Edwards, as he sets off on a mission to rescue his niece, who was captured by Native Americans.
