Today in film we watched Stagecoach directed by John Ford starring John Wayne, and the Mise-en-scene of this movie was just so damn awesome. I really loved Ford's frame within a frame shots. He was definitely ahead of his time.
Cool facts about this film: Since this was filmed in the late 1930's John Ford actually hired real life cowboys and Native Americans to act in this movie. Also when he found out Hollywood was paying the Native American actors only half as much as the European actors he threatened to stop all production, and demanded they be paid the same as everyone else.
