How the West was Won (1962)

Henry Hathaway, John Ford and George Marshall direct Debbie Reynolds, George Peppard and James Stewart in this all star, era spanning Western epic exploring manifest destiny from lone beaver trappers in the wilderness to the age of law, order and electricity.

Politically iffy as fuck but just marvel at the sheer goddamn scale of the thing. Genuinely all star, wonderous Cinerama action sequences and your afternoon thrillingly devoured. These may be the white man’s words but by God they sure make a big fuck-off movie.
