      Cheyenne's Pal is a 1917 American silent Western film directed by John Ford
      and featuring Harry Carey.
      The film is considered to be lost.

      The second movie for Jack Ford to use Harry Carey as the star
      and to use Vester Pegg, Bill Steele and Hoot Gibson who were to become part
      of the the eventual John Ford Stock Company

      The Winning of the West

      The one thing that John Ford mastered in his career as a director

      was the telling the story of the winning of the West.
      His most significant westerns are set between 1865 - 1875,
      and tends to engage with the native Indian community as in this film.
      The point that he was trying to get across was the fact that after the Civil War
      when settlers moved west, they became American.
      The east coast of America up the Revolutionary War was by and large British.
      Once they won their independence, they hadn't yet carved out an identity for themselves.
      It was after the Civil War that an American identity came into its own,
      and this is personified in the western genre, particularly John Ford's offerings.
