Another Five is over! Eric and Austin went through some of John Ford’s greatest hits from Stagecoach to The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. And they still have plenty more they could have covered. They talk about some of those as well as the aspects of Ford’s vision that connected with them the most. They also rank the Five and announce their new subject. Get excited!
In the end of his career, John Ford made one more powerhouse movie by teaming up two of the greatest actors of the generation. Neither John Wayne or Jimmy Stewart play Liberty Valance, but maybe one of them was the man who shot him. The guys dive into what Ford is saying about his western legacy, the end of an era and the myth of morality. But it wouldn’t be a successful take on a team-up if they didn’t have a team-up of their own. Enter…Eric’s dad, Ray Martindale!
