Best known for his enduring westerns (Stagecoach, The Searchers) and classic films (The Grapes of Wrath, The Quiet Man) American film director John Ford received an unprecedented four Academy Awards for Best Director over his lifetime. This collection of essays offers a comprehensive examination of Ford's life and career, revealing the frequent intersections between Ford's personal life and artistic vision. Part one provides an overview of Ford's importance in the early development of cinema. Part two focuses on selected aspects of Ford's personal life, specifically his genealogy, Irish heritage, and roots in the coastal community of Portland, Maine. Part three situates Ford's films within a broader cultural and intellectual context, exploring theories that explain why Ford's movies have sparked such interest, debate, and enjoyment among Hollywood film critics and the general cinema community.
