She Wore a Yellow Ribbon is the acclaimed 1949 Western from legendary filmmaker John Ford (How Green Was My Valley, The Searchers, The Quiet Man, Stagecoach, The Grapes of Wrath, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance) and starring the greatest Western action hero of all time himself, The Duke. In 1876, following Custer's last stand, Cavalry Captain Nathan Brittles (John Wayne, Rio Bravo, Red River, True Grit) is about to retire. But, first, Brittles must fend off encroaching Native Americans. The hostile Indians may be after white women and/or white man's land. Brittle's last assignment is to accompany pretty Olivia Dandridge (Joanne Dru) and her aunt Abby Alishard (Mildred Natwick) to a stagecoach east. Along for the trek, younger Lieutenants Flint Cohill (John Agar, Revenge of the Creature) and Ross Pennell (Harry Carey Jr., Gremlins) are enamored with the nubile Olivia, who signals she's interested by wearing yellow ribbon in her hair.
