Acadamy award winning director John Ford is best remembered for creating, not only powerful films, but for developing the careers of several actors including John Wayne, James Stewart and Henry Fonda in the 1930-40’s era of Hollywood. Jillian welcomes author Joseph Malham to discuss some of the unknown and interesting facts about the famous director offered in his new book, John Ford: Poet in the Desert.
In John Ford: Poet in the Desert, Joseph Malham offers rarely explored facets of the dark yet towering poetic genius in a fascinating analysis of the artist’s personal life. The influences on Ford’s work, from art, history and politics to the man’s mystical faith are skillfully woven together with insights into Ford’s famous films.
Ford, who won six Oscars, is known primarily for Westerns, such as The Searchers or She Wore a Yellow Ribbon. Yet in movies like The Grapes of Wrath, How Green Was My Valley, and The Quiet Man, Ford created timeless classics as he explored the role of myth, history, tradition and war in epic dramas of the individual, the family and community. This biography reveals how Ford’s work ranged over the vast and textured richness of the human experience.
Joseph Malham is an iconographer, writer and speaker who studied art in Rome through Loyola University’s Rome Center. He graduated with a BA in History from that same institution. Since 1999 Joseph has been artist-in-residence at St. Gregory the Great Church in Chicago. His panels and icon banners have been acquired by churches, institutions and individuals around the country. Joseph has lectured frequently—at the Art Institute of Chicago and various religious institutions—on the topics of iconography and religious art. His first book, By Fire into Light: Four Catholic Martyrs of the Nazi Camps, tells the stories of four heroic figures who transcended the horrors of persecution during the Second World War through their experiences of faith.
