I've had it up to here with the standard narrative about The Horse Soldiers being one of John Ford's lesser efforts. I know this sounds like heresy, but it may be my favorite post-1945 Ford film. I know that She Wore A Yellow Ribbon and The Searchers and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance are widely regarded as more substantial and therefore "better", but I don't like watching them as much as The Horse Soldiers, and anyone who doesn't like that can shove it.
