UPDATE! .. Season Two is 🔥 Fascinating story! Well researched, well put together, and humorous. Can't wait for the next

I am really interested in Peter Bogdanovich and it's great to hear his own words and impressions, but then Ben Mankowicz awkwardly inserts a name drop from his family, which comes off as pathetic.

Description

Our fifth season is Decoding John Ford, a seven-episode series about cinema's most mysterious auteur. Using scores of never-before-heard archival interviews, host Ben Mankiewicz strips back John Ford's self-spun mythology to reveal his brilliance behind the camera – alongside the often ugly, uncomfortable truths about his life and movies, asking whether we can ever truly separate art from the artist. Decoding John Ford starts June 6.
