First of a two-part profile of the great American film director, accompanying a BBCtv season of his movies.
"Making films is a piece of pie. It's a nice easy way of making a living." John Ford made over 100 films and won more
Academy Awards than any other director. Born in America, of Irish parents, his work is often characterised by a love of wide open spaces such as Monument Valley in Arizona and a vivid evocation of the epic spirit that helped build
America. In part one, Omnibus traces this remarkable career which began in the silent movie era with films like The Iron
Horse through classics such as Stagecoach and The Grapes of Wrath, to his extraordinary
Second World War documentary Battle of Midway. Presented by British film director and Ford expert Lindsay Anderson , with contributions from
John Wayne , Henry Fonda , Maureen O'Hara and Roddy McDowall. Producer Andrew Eaton
Series editor Andrew Snell
(Part 2 next week. John Ford 's film She Wore a Yellow Ribbon follows at 11.1 5pm) 0 TELETEXT SUBTITLES: page 888
