After seeing "Drums Along the Mohawk" I have to add Henry Fonda to the list of actors that had a classic western with Director John Ford. The story is gripping as Fonda and Claudette Colbert are a pioneer couple in Upstate New York in Mohawk Indian Country. Life is not going to be easy and they will have to defend themselves against intense Indian uprisings. John Ford has two of his favorite character actors in the film with John Carradine and Ward Bond. John Ford shows in "Drums Along the Mohawk" that he was the finest directors of westerns. Ford also used on most of his westerns one of the finest cinematographers in Robert Glennon. He worked with Ford on such movies as "Stagecoach" where he captured the beauty of Monument Valley in Utah. Now I would have to classify "Drum Along the Mohawk" as a buried film treasure. The KCLS web site has no record of any patron feedback. That is really usual, especially for a great film. KCLS has only one copy, so many of you might not have seen it on the shelf. So hopefully I am shinning some light on a worthy film for your enjoyment. I certainly hope so. As always, I would love to know your reaction to the film.
