Triple bill of classic John Wayne Westerns. In 'Rio Grande' (1950), Lieutenant Kirby Yorke (Wayne) is stationed at a remote cavalry post, at which his son, Jeff (Claude Jarman Jr.), enlists in order to prove himself to his father.
Yorke's ex-wife (Maureen O'Hara) arrives to fetch her son back, but her love for Kirby is rekindled amidst much family tension.
In 'Stagecoach' (1939), Geronimo is on the warpath in the untamed Wild West, but a stagecoach-load of travellers decide to take their chances and make their way across Utah's Monument Valley.
The passenger list comprises an alcoholic doctor (Thomas Mitchell); a shamed prostitute (Claire Trevor); the pregnant wife of a cavalry officer (Louise Platt); a shady bank manager (Berton Churchill); a timid whiskey salesman (Donald Meek); and an on-the-run gambler (John Carradine).
En route they pick up outlaw the Ringo Kid (Wayne) and, as the journey continues, each of the troupe are given a chance to show their true colours.
Finally, in 'Fort Apache' (1948), Colonel Thursday (Henry Fonda) is bitter at having been sent to battle 'digger' Indians and his textbook methods of warfare appear barbaric and suicidal to his men.
Captain York (Wayne), an officer experienced in Apache warfare, tries to advise Thursday but his best efforts are in vain.
