John Ford … revisited …

“For a director there are commercial rules that it is necessary to obey. In our profession, an artistic failure is nothing; a commercial failure is a sentence. The secret is to make films that please the public and also allow the director to reveal his personality.”  – John Ford

    Garry’s favorite … and as it turns out, mind too. It took me years to realize most of my favorite movies were all made by John Ford.

      Looks like I forgot to title that post. I always screw something up. I didn’t like my original post on Ford – thot I would try to improve it.
