Company of Heroes: My Life as an Actor in the John Ford Stock Company / Harry Carey, Jr.

£29.99

Product description

When Harry Carey Sr. died in 1947, director John Ford cast Carey's 26 year-old son, Harry Carey Jr, in the role of The Abilene Kid in three Godfather films. Ford and the elder Carey has filmed an earlier version of the story, and Ford dedicated the Technicolor remake to his memory. 'Company of Heroes' is the story of the making of that film, as well as the eight subsequent Ford classics. In it, Harry Carey Jr. casts a remarkably observant eye on the process of filming Westerns y one of the true masters of the form. From 'She Wore A Yellow Ribbon' and 'Wagonmaster' to 'The Searchers' and 'Cheyenne Autumn' he shows the care, tedium, challenge and exhilaration of movie-making at its highest level. It is the most intimate look of John Ford at work ever written.

Funny, insightful, and brutally honest, 'Company of Heroes' is a rip-roaring good read that presents the remarkable life story of Harry Carey Jr. and his many and cntinuing fine performances.

Published by Scarecrow Press, 1994. Hardback, complete with dust jacket, in fine condition (clean, tight and unmarked).
