Summary:
""My name's John Ford. I make Westerns." As his 1950 comment indicates - with excessive modesty - the filmmaker directed some fifty Westerns during a career that lasted more than half a century. Ford's films are in fact exceptionally varied, but he seems to have been most at ease when shooting in the great outdoors.
