Creative Geography
5 July 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The one thing that John Ford is good at is making use of time and space. In this film he begins to show that geography is as much a part of the American Western genre as the gun battles. It is almost like the iconography of Elvis Presley and Rock n Roll. It's not just the music, it's the visuals. To shoot a Western film you have to make use of the open landscape in the Mid-West, and Ford is beginning to do that in this silent offering without having to rely on gun battles. He collaborates with his audience by surprising them in his films. He offers them more than what they expect so that they can enter into the universe of the characters. This project shows early promise for the young director.
