The Iron Horse, DVD


Epic silent western from director John Ford. The film concerns the building of the first transcontinental railroad and tells a story of double dealing among surveyors and contractors, attacks by the Cheyenne Indians, immigrants hoping for a better life, saloon girls deviously seducing railroad officials, sons struggling to realise the forgotten dreams of their now-dead fathers, and desperate last minute rides by the pony express.

It culminates with the celebrated scene of the joining of the rails at Promontory Point, Utah.

This is the 150-minute US version of the film, accompanied by a 2007 score by Christopher Caliendo.
