Today (February 1, 2010) would have been legendary director John Ford’s 116th Birthday, so I thought it would be appropriate to spend the month of February appreciating the auteur and his work. The four time Oscar winning director has turned out some of the greatest films that Hollywood has ever seen. Ford was voted the 3rd greatest director of all-time by Entertainment Weekly and his work has consistently appeared on greatest films of all-time lists.
During the month of February I will be posting facts and tidbits about his life, a biographical quiz, and of course reviews of the great director’s work. Here are the films I’m planning on looking at:
2) The Grapes of Wrath
3) The Searchers
