A sentimental look at the legendary iconic film director John Ford and some of his classic Westerns, nine of which were set in the breathtaking beauty of Monument Valley. Ford "directs" a short scene for the benefit of the documentarians which includes a horsefall by Ford's favorite star, John Wayne. Additional Ford stars Henry Fonda and James Stewart reminisce about the venerable director with clips from such Ford classics as "The Iron Horse," "Stagecoach," "My Darling Clementine," "Fort Apache," "She Wore a Yellow Ribbonn," "Rio Grande," "The Searchers," "THe Man Who Shot Liberty Valance," and "Cheyenne Autumn."

Made-for-TV retrospective on some of the films of John Ford, specifically the westerns. It's hosted by John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, and Henry Fonda. It features John Ford in sit-downs with each man telling brief stories and directing a new scene with Wayne. It's not a critical analysis, and most of the insights given into the films covered are pretty routine, but it's an enjoyable, leisurely-paced little bit of history for classic movie buffs. Seeing four film legends is enough of a reason to recommend this for me. For anyone else I guess your mileage will vary depending on your tastes. One thing that I did learn was the reason for Jimmy Stewart's out-of-place role in Cheyenne Autumn. It doesn't make that picture any better for me but at least it makes me feel better that Ford had a reason (of sorts).
