Viewing Notes

Getting back into some older projects and this film is actually in a couple (IMDb Top 250 and Flickchart Top 1000). Just a long overdue blindspot this one. Henry Fonda is the star here and the biggest reason to view this classic. I like John Ford’s direction but it feels meandering at times between the main story and sub-stories. It’s really like two separate films.
