“THESE WERE THE TEN WHO FOUGHT INDIANS, OUTLAWS AND EACH OTHER AS THEY RODE TO GREATNESS ON THE STAGECOACH TO CHEYENNE!”
Stagecoach is an American film, directed by Gordon Douglas between July and September 1965, as a colour remake of the Academy Award-winning John Ford 1939 classic black-and-white western Stagecoach. Unlike the original version which listed its ten leading players in order of importance, the major stars are billed in alphabetical order.
In 1880, a group of strangers boards the east-bound stagecoach from Dry Fork, Wyoming Territory to Cheyenne, Wyoming Territory. The travellers seem ordinary, but many have secrets that they are running from. Among them are Dallas (Ann-Margaret), a prostitute who is being driven out of town; an alcoholic doctor, Doc Boone (Bing Crosby); pregnant Lucy Mallory (Stefanie Powers) who is meeting her cavalry officer husband; and whiskey salesman Samuel Peacock (Red Buttons). As the stage sets out, U.S. Cavalry Lieutenant Blanchard announces that Crazy Horse and his Siouxs are on the warpath; his small troop will provide an escort part of the way. [Wikipedia]
