Summary: "What kind of town is this when a man can't even get a decent shave in peace?" from John Ford's "My Darling Clementine"

  • In the film industry for over 50 years and as director of nearly 150 films, John Ford is a monumental figure in Hollywood.
  • Looks at issues and themes Ford explored in his movies, including gender, race, treatment of ethnic minorities and the relationship of my ...show moreth and reality.
  • Examines Ford's experimentation with new camera technique, atmospheric lighting and diverse narrative devices.
John Ford is one of the greatest and most influential of Hollywood's film-makers. He worked in the industry for over half a century, directing nearly 150 movies. The time span and output alone make him a monumental figure. And, more than just Westerns, Ford's influential lists of films includes The Informer (1935), The Grapes of Wrath (1940), How Green Was My Valley (1941) and The Quiet Man (1952). But he was also crucial in developing, and extending Hollywood's traditions. Stylistically Ford was instrumental in experimenting with new camera techniques, atmospheric lighting and diverse narrative devices. Thematically, long before it became conventional wisdom, Ford was exploring issues that concern us so deeply today, such as gender, race, the treatment of ethnic minorities and social outcasts, the nature of history and the relationship of myth and reality. For all these reasons, John Ford the man, and his films, provide interesting and fascinating reading. Ford's pictures express the world in which they were made, and have contributed to making what Hollywood is today. Popular film would be different had John Ford not been a director. This book illustrates the excitement, importance, influence, creativity, deviousness and complexity of the man and his films. ...show less
