While John Ford (1894-1973) remains one of the most influential and revered directors in film history, he is also one of the most frequently misunderstood. One widespread assumption is that he was almost exclusively a man's director, dismissive of, or at best not well attuned to, the stories, perspectives and concerns of women.Boldly challenging such an assumption, this book gives readers a richer understanding of the director's view of the world and of the women as well as the men who inhabit it.
