John Wayne, James Stewart, Henry Fonda and Andy Devine star in this documentary about filmmaking legend John Ford. In a career that spanned more than 50 years, Ford directed 140 films (although nearly all of his silent films are now lost) and he came to be regarded as one of the finest American filmmakers of his generation. Ford’s films and personality have been highly influential, leading colleagues such as Ingmar Bergman and Orson Welles to name him as one of the greatest directors of all time.
It’s a fair to midland western and it’s got John Wayne. Life is good.
