Director's new cut of Ford film

November 07, 2006|By Susan King | Susan King,Los Anageles Times

HOLLYWOOD -- Peter Bogdanovich's rarely screened 1971 documentary Directed by John Ford has taken on almost mythic proportions over the decades.

Narrated by Bogdanovich's good friend, director Orson Welles, the film featured interviews with the crusty, cantankerous Oscar-winning Ford as well as John Wayne, Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewart, who had appeared in many of Ford's films.

Directed by John Ford airs at 8 and 11:30 tonight on Turner Classic Movies.
