Fort Apache vs. Rio Grande



I really, really liked Fort Apache. Rio Grande is merely okay. Easy choice.

Definitely enjoyed Fort Apache a lot more than Rio Grande. It's not bad at all but Apache is a lot better, probably the best of the cavalry trilogy overall.

The stuff with Cochise in Fort Apache is incredible, but all the drunken Irishmen shenanigans get old after a while. Rio Grande is better balanced for me, and the romance between Wayne and O'Hara is quite lovely.
