On a Totally Non-Bench-Related Note



Text  



Over at The Corner, Kathryn and Jonah have been chatting about John Ford films, especially The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (today) and The Searchers (a few days ago).  Now might be a good time to point to a new book on John Ford just out, called Print the Legend: Politics, Culture, and Civic Virtue in the Films of John Ford.  There’s a great essay in it on Liberty Valance by the book’s editor, Sidney A. Pearson, Jr., plus two essays on The Searchers (take that, JPod!), and my wife Gwen Brown and I have one on How Green Was My Valley (which only beat Citizen Kane and The Maltese Falcon for Best Picture).
