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.
