      My favorite of the 4 cavalry pictures he did for Ford. The character I feel is one his warmest and very likable, in fact this is my favorite character he played. Anyway one thing I noticed was that he looks like J.B Books 27 years before hand.



      Lt. B., now that you mentioned it, it is like Duke had a dress rehearsal for his part as Books for he does look like him in Ribbon. Good point.

      John Agar was billed as a top actor in this movie, as if it was his coming out movie. He never really took off as a fan favorite if I recall correctly.

      Maybe someone else here knows more about Agar, that was just what I remembered and not quite sure if it is right.

      There's another dog scene earlier in 'Yellow Ribbon' where Nathan, Alshard and Tyree are discussing the markings on an arrow and Ben Johnson points to the sign of the Cheyenne Dog Soldier. Right on cue a dog trots by in the background, a typical example of Ford visually reinforcing a line.
      Similarly in 'McLintock', when Patrick Wayne tell Duke: "You're Wrong!", theres a chinese laundry across the street with the name 'Wong' prominently displayed!
      Spotting these little extra bits of business is fun and it might be nice to have more examples from anyone interested in this type of thing...
