Harry Carey, Jr

Harry Carey, Jr is one of the last surviving members of the "John Ford Stock Company" or in other words actors who Director John Ford would use over and over again in his movies. Harry Carey Jr has written a book about his acting career working with other actors like John Wayne. The picture above is from the cover of that book. Click on the title above for a link to Harry Carey Jr.'s web site where you can purchase a personally autographed copy of the book. I did A few year ago and if you are a fan of John Wayne or John Ford it is a good read. Harry's father was a star of silent westerns and a friend of John Ford's and that is how Jr met John Ford. His father was the actor who played the Vice President who presided over the U.S. Senate in Mr. Smith Goes To Washington with Jimmy Stewart.
