Working together for the twelfth time, screen icon John Wayne and legendary director John Ford forged The Searchers into an indelible image of the frontier and the men and women who challenged it. Wayne plays ex-Confederate soldier Ethan Edwards, a believer more in bullets than in words. He's seeking his niece (a teenage Natalie Wood), captured by Comanches who massacred his family. He won't surrender to hunger, thirst, the elements or loneliness to find the men who murdered his loved-ones. And despite his obsessive, five-year quest, Ethan ultimately encounters something he didn't expect to find: his own humanity.
