A lovely eulogy, Glenn, and a beautiful riposte to the weird anti-Ford dialogue that Tarantino has started.

A wonderful post. Thank you for sharing it.


Wouldn't it be easier at this point to list the canon directors Tarantino *hasn't* bad-mouthed?

That frame above, if I'm remembering correctly, marks the occurrence of one of my favorite pieces of Ford dialogue:

"Why, he hops to it like a drunkard at a Fourth o' Ju-Ly barbecue!"

Glenn Kenny

Craig: Bingo.

Remembering running home from 5th grade to watch Spin and Marty. Hadn't discovered Mr. Ford yet. Well, you're young and then you're old and these guys are always with us.


I just saw "Cheyenne Autumn" with my parents at Lincoln Center this evening, wherein Carey makes an uncredited cameo as a soldier whose name Richard Widmark is continually getting wrong. In light of this news, that characterization seems particularly poignant.
