From back cover;
The career of John Ford, America's greatest film director, spanned nearly half a century. With masterpieces that ranged from "The Iron Horse" in 1924 to "The Informer" in 1935, from "Stagecoach" and "The Grapes of Wrath" in 1939 to "The Searchers" in 1956, he was one of the world's most popular filmmakers, and one of the most universally admired. "About John Ford" is a critical interpretation and a personal tribute. It's comprehensive survey of Ford's work has the authority of a rider who is himself a distinguished filmmaker. And the portrait which emerges has the vividness and warmth of friendship.
