DescriptionAn Important File Copy Letter to John Ford, 1955. Wayne's yellow carbon copy of the original typed letter he sent to "Pappy," dated "Nov. 28, 1955," regarding Wayne's feelings about "The Searchers" and his decision to close down his Wayne-Fellows Production Company; reading in part "First: I think "The Searchers" is just plain wonderful," then changing the subject to his unhappiness with Bob Fellows ["I find him incompetent, even when he's trying"] and his uncertainly about Bob Morrison [his brother] and Andy McLaglen ("(I've) moved them up faster than I should have"). Wayne ends by coming back to "The Searchers" -- mainly about its music which he is somewhat conflicted about, but he finishes on an upbeat note: "It's just a wonderful picture. You got great / performances out of everyone, and it has a raw brutalness / without any pettiness or meanness. / All I can say is - Thanks again, Coach. / Your everloving;" overall, some illuminating insights into Wayne's thoughts on one of his most famous films.
