Fair use rationale for Image:Stagecoach movieposter.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Stagecoach movieposter.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Racism in Stagecoach[edit]

I felt dirty just watching this deeply racist work of art made with utter Hollywood professionalism. Could someone with relevant knowledge of racism in Hollywood contribute a section on the subject (since racism is a defining (im)moral quality of this film? thanx!

Stagecoach is not particularly racist for the period in which it was made. Such a section would be appropriate only for something far more blatant, for example The Birth of a Nation. Clarityfiend (talk) 04:50, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Budgets vs. Negative Cost[edit]

The listing here of STAGECOACH's budget, which cites Matthew Bernstein's WALTER WANGER: HOLLYWOOD INDEPENDENT, is incorrect. The listed figure ($531,374) is actually the film's negative cost (the ultimate production cost for making the initial cut of the film), not its budget (see Bernstein, 439). Should we change the label?

As to the actual budget, different sources give different amounts, but one of the film's original budgeting documents, held at the Ford Collection in the Lilly Library and dated from after production started, lists an amount of $490,700. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Threepwood89 (talkcontribs) 03:17, 12 May 2013 (UTC)


The movie is set in 1880. John Wayne carried a Winchester Model 1892 repeating rifle, as he always did in the movies. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:06, 16 December 2016 (UTC)
