About John Ford...
Paperback      ISBN: 0859650146
The career of John Ford, considered by some to be America’s greatest film director, spanned nearly half a century. With masterpieces like Stagecoach, The Informer, The Grapes of Wrath, and The Searchers, he was one of the world’s most popular filmmakers and one of the most universally admired. About John Ford is a critical interpretation and a personal tribute. Lindsay Anderson’s comprehensive survey of Ford’s work has the authority of a writer who was himself a distinguished filmmaker, and the portrait that emerges has the vividness and warmth of friendship. “About John Ford leaves no room for challenge.” — David Robinson, The Times (London)
