stagecoach 1966 is a well made film. it only comes up short when compared to the original. Granted Alex Cord is no John Wayne, then again who is. If you look at the other actors and actresses their parts are a little more fleshed out. We learn a little more about the characters throughout the film as compared to 1939. This is another 20th Century Fox Film from my youth that deserves to be at least on VHS if not on DVD, just like the recently released to DVD, What A Way To Go. It amazes me that the film studios will pop out so many dvds that are dreck and ignore classic movies, there are other movies that deserve to be on DVD, such as Major Dundee, Fort Apache, Ride The High Country and others.
