Made-for-TV retrospective on some of the films of John Ford, specifically the westerns. It's hosted by John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, and Henry Fonda. It features John Ford in sit-downs with each man telling brief stories and directing a new scene with Wayne. It's not a critical analysis, and most of the insights given into the films covered are pretty routine, but it's an enjoyable, leisurely-paced little bit of history for classic movie buffs. Seeing four film legends is enough of a reason to recommend this for me. For anyone else I guess your mileage will vary depending on your tastes. One thing that I did learn was the reason for Jimmy Stewart's out-of-place role in Cheyenne Autumn. It doesn't make that picture any better for me but at least it makes me feel better that Ford had a reason (of sorts).
