The second in John Ford’s “Cavalry trilogy” boasts what might be the greatest use ever made by Ford of Monument Valley. Captain Brittles (John Wayne), rankling from the defeat at Little Bighorn, faces retirement at the same time as a new Indian war threatens. Matters come to a head when he leads a mission against a nearby Cheyenne encampment at the same time as he must escort his superior officer’s wife and daughter to the stagecoach. After both his missions stall, Brittles attempts a face-to-face meeting with an important Native American chief to stop an impending war. Cash bar and scrumptious buffet. $45; $40 for Museum members. Registration is closed.
