John Ford is best known for making cowboy pictures, but he made more than Westerns. It’s this “other” material that is showcased in John Ford: Not a Cowboy in Sight, the March film series at the Central Library.
The problem with Ronald Colman (1891-1958) was that he made acting look too easy. In 1935 he was cast as Sidney Carton, the hero of M-G-M’s A Tale of Two Cities. Colman’s performance is as impressive today as it was when first seen more than 70 years ago.
