A John Ford film, missing for more than 70 years, has been discovered 2002 in a French cinema archive. BUCKING BROADWAY stars Ford’s favorite silent film cowboy, Harry Carey, who had the lead role in 26 of the director’s films, mostly in the Cheyenne Harry-series. In this newly discovered film, the hero’s girlfriend is carried off to New York, and he and his posse ride down Broadway to rescue her. The similarities to THE SEARCHERS are obvious: real men ride into town to protect their women.
