COMPETITION: WIN TICKETS TO THE JOHN FORD IRELAND FILM SYMPOSIUM OPENING NIGHT FORD'S GOLDEN YEAR 75TH ANNIVERSARY AND SCREENING OF STAGECOACH

IFTN is delighted to offer 10 pairs of tickets for the Opening Night of this year's John Ford Ireland Film Symposium 75th Anniversary of Ford's Golden Year of 1939 and Screening of the classic Western Stagecoach with John Wayne on Friday June 7th at 7pm in Dublin's historic Savoy Cinema.

The year 1939 in Motion Pictures is widely considered to be the greatest year in the history of Cinema, with an outstanding number of films going on to be remembered as all-time classic films; from beloved blockbusters Gone With the Wind and The Wizard of Oz to one of cinema's most poignant and tragic love stories in Wuthering Heights to Shirley Temple at her child star peak in The Little Princess to the powerful sentiment at the heart of Mr Smith Goes to Washington, and more.

Among these, John Ford stood tall and unique in making not one, but three major films in 1939; the Westerns Stagecoach and Drums Along the Mohawk and the historical drama Young Mr. Lincoln. All three films received Academy Award nominations that year, with 10 in total, Stagecoach eventually winning two.

This Opening Night will feature a tribute to this classic year before the 75th Anniversary screening of Stagecoach, starring John Wayne. John Wayne's children, Marissa and Ethan Wayne will be special guests at the Opening Night, along with John Ford's grandson, Dan Ford.

What legendary actor starred in John Ford's 1939 classic Stagecoach?

     a) John Wayne
     b) Henry Fonda
     c) Cary Grant
