    Re: "chesty" - A Forgotten John Ford Film
    Based on some Internet research this morning, it would seem that this documentary, which didn't air on TV until 1976 (three years after John Ford's death) is still not available on DVD or VHS, except possibly if someone taped it off of TV when it originally aired.

  • Is there any official confirmation of what military intelligence work Ford undertook for US Navy in the years before WW2? Was John Wayne and Ward Bond also involved in this work whilst using the cover of cruising on the Aramer?

  • I found this interview that John Ford did in the early 50's about John Wayne. It says alot about the way he felt about Duke.


    I really like the bit about hats because it just may explain why John Wayne wore the same hat he wore in Stagecoach for twenty years .

  • I found a rather interesting article about John Ford I thought you all might appreciate.

    For Conservative Movie Lovers: John Ford, John Wayne and "They Were Expendable" - Part 1



    Apparently this is Part 2. In reading these articles about Ford, I was struck by the stark contrast between people like him and many who inhabit today's Hollywood.
