I have favorite directors for Westerns, SyFy, Drama, and for Film Noir and Neo Noir and for different decades, there is no "all" time favorite.

kind of strangely most did not seem to go for *FORD?  A few though

John Ford  was the favorite director Of my favorite director, Akira Kurosawa.

I don't know which films were Kurosawa's favorite Ford films, but mine are:

 

"Mary of Scotland", starring Katharine Hepburn &

 "Two Rode Together", starring James Stewart and Richard Widmark.

How about "Actor/directors" or... "Director/ actors"? ie:

An actor/director would be someone like CLINT EASTWOOD, who first made his mark as an actor, and the other category (director/actor) would be a guy like JOHN HUSTON, who made his mark as a director.  It's OK to intermingle names while listing.  

I just gave two of MY favorites, and I don't know too many(if any) from the "classic" period who fit either category, except for IDA LUPINO( another favorite)
