Los Angeles: American Film Institute [AFI], 1971, 1972. Two vintage studio still photographs, one borderless with a bottom margin, and one with a wide bottom margin, of Peter Bogdanovich and John Ford, from the 1971 film. One with a mimeo snipe on verso, for the 9th New York Film Festival, the film's US premiere.
Bogdanovich's documentary on the life and films of he seminal director, interviewing the notoriously obstinate man himself, as well as some of his most famous actors, notably Henry Fonda, James Stewart, and John Wayne. Affording the rights to the clips, however, exhausted the film's AFI funding, resulting in the film being rarely shown, and then only in non-profit venues. In 2006 Bogdanovich, having been dissatisfied with the initial version, re-edited and included additional interviews with actors and directors, including Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and Walter Hill.
