John Ford (1894-1973) is considered not only the greatest poet of American cinema but, some would argue, in the history of the medium itself. Joseph Malham’s meditative study explores the life of the director as well as influences on his work including art, literature, politics and his deeply felt mystical faith. Weaving the details Ford’s famous films with careful analysis of the artist’s personal life, this uncommon biography presents a rarely explored facet of this troubled yet poetic genius. Malham creates a fascinating portrait of a man whose spiritual beliefs helped give shape and profundity to his unmatched body of cinematic work.
