Ben Johnson Website

Click on the title for a link to a website about one of my favorite character actors and a member of Director John Ford's "stock company." In 1971, he was awarded an Academy Award for for best supporting actor for his performance as 'Sam The Lion' in The Last Picture Show, directed by Peter Bogdanovich. John Ford reportedly had to talk him into taking the part at Bogdanovich's request.
