Why didn't you speak with someone who worked for Mr. Ford?
18 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

I found this doc very slow. It took 2 minutes into the film before you saw the first photo of Mr. Ford. The intro had nothing to do with Mr. Ford or his work. Plus, they never spoke to one person who worked with Mr. Ford. How about Maureen O'Hara?

The stories have been told. And it looked like a photo shoot for those who talk about Mr. Ford (with stories that have been told before). The only good part of the film was Mr. Fonda. He did try to give a look into Mr. Ford and his Father's work together.

I loved Mr. Redman's doc on the Wild Bunch. But this was boring look at a great Director.
