Synopsis
In 1971, Peter Bogdanovich completed one of the essential films about American moviemaking. Some 35 years later, he has made it still better. The initial 1971 version of this documentary featured John Wayne, Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewart describing how they worked with the master. Interviews with Ford and carefully selected clips from his films offered rare insights into his process. All of that, along with narration by Orson Welles, can be found in the new version; what's new are interviews with Steven Spielberg, Clint Eastwood, Walter Hill and Martin Scorsese. Seeing today's great directors talk, with great reverence, about films including "The Searchers" leaves little doubt: nearly 25 years after his death, Ford remains America's most influential filmmaker.
