Nobody remembers John Ford?

 

Perhaps it's a bit of an overstatement to call this column "The John Ford Nobody Knows." The director revealed here is certainly known to Ford's protean biographer, Tag Gallagher; just as assuredly known to Rudy Behlmer and Joseph McBride, two of the passionate movie scholars who appear in Nick Redman's highfalutin doc, Becoming John Ford, an extra included in two of the boxes Fox is putting on sale today; and to a handful of other film scholars. But for both the eager-to-consume-more cinephile and the Searchers-slagging-contrarian-dilletante, the John Ford found in these discs will be a largely new quantity.
