She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949)

She Wore a Yellow Ribbon is a 1949 American western directed by John Ford, starring John Wayne and much of the "John Ford Stock Company", including John Agar, Ben Johnson, Harry Carey Jr. and Victor McLaglen. It is the middle film of John Ford's so-called "Cavalry Trilogy" (which includes 1948's Fort Apache and 1950's Rio Grande) and oddly enough, the only one of the three filmed in color. It would go on to win the 1950 Academy Award for Best Color Cinematography.
