Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you all so very much fro ALL the kind comments and emails about my Cottage SAL piece. It is a fun piece to stitch and I think will turn out great - much like the LHN Monthly piece I did a year or so ago.
The two movies I wanted to mention today are both directed by that great director John Ford - 1894-1973. Over the years I have really come to enjoy the many movie he made from his enormous career.
The first movie is "Fort Apache" - 1948 - starring John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Shirley Temple, Ward Bond Guy Kibbee and George O'Brien.
here is the movie trailer -
This was the first of three Calvary films that Ford made - it was followed by "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" - 1949 and then by "Rio Grande" - in 1950. Wikipedia has a great synopsis of the film HERE. I totally enjoyed this film and would certainly recommend it to anyone.
The second Ford film I'd like to mention is "Wagon Master" - 1950 - starring Ben Johnson, Joanne Dru, Harry Carey Jr, Ward Bond and Jane Darwell.
I couldn't find a trailer for the film but I did find the opening credits - you can get a real feel for the film from this...
This is a wonderfully shot film and a pretty good story - worth a look. For a nice synopsis of the film you can click HERE. This is another Ford film I would highly recommend - you can not go wrong with either film!!
I think I'll wrap it up for today sports fans. Thanks for dropping by - do come again!
