Bryan launches a new special series that will be appearing on the Full of Sith periodically, where we get in depth on the influences and inspirations from other films on Star Wars. Today, we take a closer look at the influence of John Ford on cinema and how the 1956 film The Searchers made a deep impact on the Star Wars saga. This is an extended audio version. A version with video examples of the comparisons will appear on the Star Wars Explained Youtube channel.
