A Tribute to Rio Grande

John Ford and John Wayne collaborated on twenty-four movies over the course of their respective careers. Movie historians and critics have made a special classification for three of these movies. They call them The Cavalry Trilogy. Rio Grande, made in 1950, was the third of these movies (Fort Apache and She Wore a Yellow Ribbon were the other two) and stars John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. So circle the wagons and get ready for Destination Hollywood's Tribute to Rio Grande.
