Stagecoach Run, 1936's appropriately renamed Winds of the Wasteland, is one of John Wayne's greatest B-grade Western efforts, and one of the last such performances he would give before moving on to the later highlights we typically associate with his career. In part, this success is due to the notable improvement in quality (from writing to sound to setting) over the rest of its Lone Star Productions counterparts. The film's highlight is an amazing (trust me) stagecoach race through the gorgeous valleys of northern California that foreshadows Ben Hur's epic race several decades later (appropriate, given that Yakima Canutt was involved with both projects). Very Wells Fargo of them!

This is probably one of the more family-friendly Wayne films, for several reasons. First, it carries a positive message about perseverance through adversity (a dying town) and "making lemons out of lemonade" that is atypical of the western genre, which is often focused on revenge and the like. Secondly, Stagecoach Run is in color, making it more accessible to the younger generation, who too often has no patience or interest in anything black and white. Of course, it's worth mentioning that this DVD contains both the black and white and the colorized versions, so you're blessed with the option of choice. Finally, there's an excellent John Wayne trivia game buried in the bonus features that is quite fun to play with your family, particularly if they happen to be film buffs as well.

If you're in the market for a B-Western, Stagecoach Run will not disappoint.

An early Republic entry this John Wayne film is less than hour long typical of B-Western. Legend films has colorized this film but left the soundtrack alone.
The colorization is not a high quality job but still better than B&W. But the B&W version is here anyway as well for those who hate colorization. I have news for Legend Films; the people who hate colorization won't buy this anyway so don't waste your time with B&W version.
The actual movie has an exciting stagecoach race as the finale with Yakima Cannutt and John Wayne doing excellent stunt work. Wayne totally dominates the film and although [...]
Phyllis Fraser is pretty she adds nothing.
The original title is Winds of the Wasteland from 1936. The DVD title really is a better title for the film.

Here is The Duke presented wonderfully by Legend Films. My husband insisted on purchasing this one since he is a big fan of all of John Wayne's films. A great film and very entertaining, so well worth the purchase price. Also not sure why one consumer had an issue saying there was no color?? We watched a great colorized version and have no complaints!
