John Ford came to Hollywood following one of his brothers, an actor. Asked what brought him to Hollywood, he replied "The train". He became one of the most respected directors in the business, in spite of being known for his westerns, which were not considered "serious" film. He won six Oscars, counting (he always did) the two that he won for his WWII documentary work. He had one wife; a son and daughter; and a grandson, Dan Ford who wrote a biography on his famous grandfather.

10 Favorite Directors (with commentaries) (10 person items)

" John Ford is one of the most prolific and influential directors of all-time, although he never took movies seriously, regarding them as an easy job. Maybe that was true or maybe that was just a part of his cocky and tough persona he put on for everyone else to hide his inner softness. No one knows for sure. He directed westerns, war films, dramas that were filled with unbreakable masculine power on one side but there was always a gentle,"
