15 slates from The Searchers

A couple of days ago I had the pleasure of watching The Searchers with my daughter Lily. She had seen a couple of other westerns previously, but this was her first time with The Searchers. Afterwords we talked about it. We talked about the character of Ethan Edwards and the complexity of his character. We talked about how the native Americans were portrayed and the historical reality of the genocide against them. We also watched the extra features and talked about how the film was created. I mentioned that many consider it to be one of the best westerns ever made. Lily said it IS the best western ever made. She’s my kid!
