GUEST,Colwyn Dane John Ford: Movie Music (42) RE: John Ford: Movie Music 25 Oct 00


Doug I haven't read that one so will check with our Public Library.

One I have read is "About John Ford" written by the late Lindsay Anderson - he who directed "This Sporting Life", "If" and "O Lucky Man" - it has interviews with some of the stock players, Harry Carey, Ben Johnson and with Ford himself.
There is a great photograph in it, which was taken during the making of 'Liberty Valance';
and shows the major players Wayne,Stewart,Marvin et al,in a large tent, seated around a table having tea and biscuits.
Ford is at the head of the table and was obviously talking to this captive audience cos they are all looking like little children listening to a master storyteller.

Four o'clock tea was a regular occurrence on Ford's set.

MichaelAnthony I'll get back to you tomorrow.
