Re: Ben Johnson

Happy National Day of the Cowboy! Here's my favorite cowboy on an Italian poster for Mighty Joe Young (or as they called it in Italian, The King of Africa). Before and after framing. :) http://i742.photobucket.com/albums/xx61/pvitari/Ben%20Pics%202017/Mighty%20Joe%20Young%20Italian%20Poster-S1_zpstl...

Re: Ben Johnson

Here's poor Ben, hanging by one foot, in One-Eyed Jacks. This scene was cut from the final version of the movie. Bob survives his gunshot wounds from the bank robbery and instead is quickly strung up by the angry townspeople. According to Life Magazine, he hung up there so long he nearly passed out,...

Re: Ben Johnson

I finally got a nice 8x10 original still of this publicity photo from Wagon Master -- before I only had it as a small magazine clipping signed by Harry Carey, Jr.

Here's a still from Oklahoma!, with Ben "playing" the accordion. http://i742.photobucket.com/albums/xx61/pvitari/Ben%20Pics%202017/Oklahoma-5S-1_zpsyobekp0n.jpg I posted another still from this same scene two years ago -- you can see it here: https://benjohnsonfanpage.shutterfly.com/photog...

Re: Ben Johnson

Another shot of the epic barroom brawl between Shane and Chris Calloway. ;) At least this time we can see Ben's face. The last three stills I posted from Shane only showed Ben from the back. :) http://i742.photobucket.com/albums/xx61/pvitari/Ben%20Pics%202017/Shane-10S-1_zps7hjtfeum.jpg
