John Wayne estate shares rare The Searchers behind-the-scenes set photo

The Searchers: Trailer for 1956 John Wayne western

Back in 1956, John Wayne starred in what many consider to be one of his greatest movies.

John Ford’s The Searchers, one of the best Westerns ever made, saw Duke play a Civil War veteran spending years searching for his abducted niece, played by Natalie Wood.

The iconic film was shot in Ford’s favoured Monument Valley, part of the Navajo territory on the Arizona/Utah state line, where temperatures during filming could reach heights of 49°C (120°F).

Wayne’s estate has recently shared a photo from the hot set with Duke dressed as Ethan Edwards and posing with a young fan during a break.

The boy was identified in the comments as TV veteran and Westerns expert Rob Word, who confirmed the very fact himself.
