John Ford’s valedictory to the Old West may not be up there with ”The Searchers,” but it’s darn close, with John Wayne wringing a surprising amount of pathos out of his role as a frontier tough guy who steps aside when civilization — in the person of democratically minded dude lawyer James Stewart — takes over. Features the classic, maddening Ford line ”When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.” Class, discuss.
