Did You Know?
Often cast his older brother Francis Ford
in very small and uncredited parts in his films. He had followed Francis out to Hollywood. Francis was a silent-era director-actor who helped John establish a career. Allegedly, the employment of Francis was for sadistic purposes, since John seemed to enjoy giving him small, unimportant parts and yelling at him in front of the cast and crew.
Rarely used camera movements in his films, reserving them only for very specific moments. Also avoided close-ups as much as possible.
