1. Young Mr Lincoln, The Searchers and The Man Who Shot
Liberty Valance are my favorites. Enjoy!

2. The Quiet Man was sort of his tribute to his parents homeland of Ireland.
That was definitely a special project for him.
She Wore a Yellow Ribbon and the other two parts of his 'cavalry trilogy' are also good examples of his work.

3. How Green Was My Valley
Edited on Fri Apr-08-11 02:54 PM by bookworm65t
wonderful film that is set in a Welsh mining town, slowly heart-breaking. Has a young Maureen O'Hara and Roddy McDowell.

4. The Cavalry Trilogy
Fort Apache, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon and Rio Grande

Stage Couch, The Searchers, The Grapes of Wrath, My Darling Clementine.

If you can find it, the semi documentary The Battle of Midway

Ford brought out the best in both John Wayne and Henry Fonda.
