HOW THE WEST WAS WON

Dirs. John Ford, Henry Hathaway and George Marshall (USA, 1963) 162 mins
How the West Was Won tells the tale of the development of the American west from the 1830s through the Civil War to the end of the century, as seen through the eyes of one pioneer family. The film is divided into three chapters – “The Civil War,” “The Railroad,” and “The River, the Plains, the Outlaws” – following four generations of the Prescott family, a spirited group of easterners who make a declaration to migrate west.
