Recommended Posts

Name a movie that John Ford directed that has hit the zeitgeist. Films like citizen Kane, gone with the wind, wizard of Oz our films are pretty much everyone has seen. I think stagecoach might be his most famous film it's not exactly a film that many people have seen we're born post 1980. I think the reason he's not on this list is because people just haven't seen his movies.


...which is on us BOTers, a community of film lovers. 


In addition to Stagecoach and How Green Was My Valley, these films of his are all famous and legendary:


Grapes of Wrath

My Darling Clementine 

The Quiet Man

Mr. Roberts

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance 

The Searchers

I agree with you 100%. but if you took a poll here at the forums out of those six movies that you mentioned my guess is most people here have not seen those. I know there are exceptions of course but I mean the vast majority of the members here. Out of those sticks that you mention I've only seen three of them. Again that's on me as well.

I know, I’m just saying it’s on us, since we’re all movie buffs.

Sure, I know he is not a director of blockbusters or extremely famous movies. It is just that it is a pity that people do not know what he did.
