During the silent period, John Ford mastered the art of recreating the old world (1861-1877) in his Westerns in order to define the nation. He allows you to share the perspective of the protagonist, enabling you to just walk into the story like a Gainsborough painting. He collaborates with his audience, beckoning them through his character nuances and gestures. It's a kind of cinematic flirting, sweeping the audience into the plot. He also has a relationship with the camera, tracking and panning scenes like a paintbrush in a picture. He is definitely likened to 1950s Alfred Hitchcock, and learned the art of storytelling during this period.
