Item description for John Ford: The Complete Films by Scott Eyman...

"When in doubt, make a Western." -- John Ford Director of nearly 150 feature films and winner of six Oscars, John Ford (1895-1973) was the quintessential American filmmaker. Ford produced an unparalleled body of work that includes such classics as The Grapes of Wrath, How Green Was My Valley, Stagecoach, My Darling Clementine, The Quiet Man, and The Searchers. In response to critics and fans who praised his work as having a powerful, singular vision, Ford was known for making statements such as "It's no use talking to me about art, I make pictures to pay the rent"; though such assertions betrayed his genuine love of filmmaking, which he called "the only thing I really like to do." Author Scott Eyman calls Ford "America's Homer" -- a fitting title for the filmmaker who helped frame the American experience for the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about John Ford: The Complete Films?

Really illustrates Ford's genius.  Jul 3, 2007
I was never too big a John Ford fan, just got this from the library out of curiosity, and I'm definitely going to purchase it. Its such a beautiful book, with not only large photos which capture the most visually awesome moments from all of Ford's many movies, including a revealing array of moments from lost films. Really illustrates Ford's genius in two ways: you can read it once with the margins, absorbing each large picture and its caption, then more in depth by reading the text in the middle by Eyman, who wrote a good book on Ernst Lubitsch amongst other things.
