TV Tonight: Directed by John Ford (1971/2006)

If you're looking for a respite from election news this evening, TCM is showing a newly updated version of Peter Bogdanovich's famed 1971 documentary, DIRECTED BY JOHN FORD. The documentary features interviews with John Wayne, James Stewart, and Henry Fonda, as well as Ford himself.

I taped this on Beta when it aired on PBS a quarter-century ago. According to the L.A. Times (subject link), the new material includes audio of a conversation between Katharine Hepburn and Ford in his final days.

More here and here.

Looking forward to seeing this new version.
