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.
Best known for her five turns as John Wayne's leading lady and as being Natalie Wood's mother in Miracle on 34th Street, she in actuality had a varied and noteworthy Hollywood career which we spotlight in our Tribute to Maureen O'Hara.
