  1. Since my DirectedByJohnFord.com website was hacked a few months ago, I feel a gaping hole for posting about my favorite director. I figured it was about time to open up a thread of my own about his films. Feel free to post willy-nilly about him (politely, of course, please). It's a "Rambling" type of thread so minimal fuss and rules.
  2. Hey, i know we're smack dab in the middle of Oscar month and it's general February slowness around here, but I would feel remiss if I did not send out an alert on this one, and if any of you would like to discuss it feel free. THE LOST PATROL (1934) dir- John Ford for those who have not seen it- it is truly a magnificent film, every bit as good as the other Zeniths of Ford's career, done the year before he won Best director and Picture for THE INFORMER, I actually prefer it to that movie (one could maybe say THE LOST PATROL is his first masterpiece?) . Victor MacLaglen is amazing in it; as is KARLOFF. it's only an hour and 12 minutes long too! Maltin gives it four stars. (even a stopped watch is right twice a day.) Lost Patrol, The (1934) Synopsis: A British army troop fights off Arab snipers while holed up in an oasis. Dir: John Ford Cast: Victor McLaglen , Boris Karloff , Wallace Ford . LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW: D: John Ford. Victor McLaglen, Boris Karloff, Wallace Ford, Reginald Denny, Alan Hale, J. M. Kerrigan, Billy Bevan. McLaglen's small British military group lost in Mesopotamian desert, as Arabs repeatedly attack the dwindling unit. Classic actioner filled with slice-of-life stereotypes, headed by religious fanatic Karloff. Fast-moving fun, great Max Steiner score. Scripted by Dudley Nichols, from Philip MacDonald's novel Patrol. Previously filmed in 1929, as a British silent starring Victor McLaglen's brother, Cyril, in the lead role; reworked many times (BAD LANDS, SAHARA, BATAAN, etc.).
