John Ford

Ford in 1946 John Ford (February 1, 1894 – August 31, 1973) was an American film director. He is renowned both for Westerns such as ''Stagecoach'' (1939), ''The Searchers'' (1956), and ''The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance'' (1962), as well as adaptations of classic 20th-century American novels such as the film ''The Grapes of Wrath'' (1940). His four Academy Awards for Best Director (in 1935, 1940, 1941, and 1952) remain a record. One of the films for which he won the award, ''How Green Was My Valley'', also won Best Picture.

In a career that spanned more than 50 years, Ford directed more than 140 films (although most of his silent films are now lost) and he is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential filmmakers of his generation. Ford's work was held in high regard by his colleagues, with Orson Welles and Ingmar Bergman among those who have named him one of the greatest directors of all time.

Ford made frequent use of location shooting and long shots, in which his characters were framed against a vast, harsh, and rugged natural terrain. Provided by Wikipedia
