Just been reading about him, he was a top stuntman for years and a real cowboy, great to see him receiving this
I have seen the Last Picture Show twice. Ben Johnson deserved the award. Well done!
Ben and Chloris real stars.
HOW DARE they show Jane Fonda during his speech?
So that's the other Marshal in hang em high
Watch this 1982 interview of Ben Johnson. He was also the best choice to play the owner of the MLB team then California Angels, AKA his good friend Gene Autry, in the 1994 movie Angels in the Outfield. Enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJhJwo4R0A8
I REMEMBER THAT NIGHT, I REMEMBER I WAS SO HAPPY BEN WON, AND I REMEMBER THAT LAST STATEMENT B/C I'VE QUOTED IT OFTEN (CREDITING IT TO HIM). WONDERFUL FELLER.
Roy Scheider should win
ben acted for so long with the likes of mclaglan and wayne and other tall guys that it comes as a shock to see how really tall he is .same height as harris.
Ben was one of my all time favorites. Class act all the way.
Ben Johnson could also run the 100 in under 10 secs.
The end of his speech was great.
Great character actor and considered the best. Horseman in Hollywood
So many great, quiet, understated Ben Johnson performances that led up to his flawless work in 'Last Picture Show.' I would also submit that several future performances of Johnson (as FBI G-Man Melvin Purvis in 'Dillinger,' a hard-bitten cowboy in 'Bite the Bullet,' the manipulative prison warden in 'The Getaway') were all also Oscar quality.My only beef here would be that Fernando Rey should have been on the list of nominees for 'The French Connection.' Also, people always forget how really good Paul Michael Glaser (yes, from TV's 'Starsky & Hutch') was in 'Fiddler on the Roof.' Director Norman Jewison cut Glaser's showstopper song at the end of the first half of the film (right before the intermission) due to the film's lengthy running time. I have always maintained that if that song were left in Glaser would've been an Oscar-nominee and his career would've been quite different. Check out the extras on the 'Fiddler' DVD.
What a guy, what a man.
A different era. A class guy
Great movie and a great actor. I have to mention one more movie he was in, The wild bunch, greatest western ever made.
Jeff Bridges looks like Tucker Carlson.
There will never be another Hollywood star agen.
great person…Sgt Tyree..is that your department ? rest in peace.
"Everybody in town is a better actor than I am, but none of them can play Ben Johnson as good as I can."
Great actor and like his good friend John Wayne, under valued by the academy. ♥
ben johnson what a great great man
the only world champion rodeo rider and oscar winner. Sgt Tyree in She Wore a Yellow Ribbon.
RIP The Man Called Horse Richard Harris
What a Wonderful Country Gentleman. Hollywood employed him. but he always kept his manners with him. Cheers Everyone
Ben Johnson was one hell of a actor, he played always a good law man ! He reminded me of a Tough, modern day Texas Ranger !⭐️🤠👍
Half irish and half native American. The best mix anyone could be. Both great nations.
Loved every movie this wonderful actor was in. Miss him so much..
What a man and legend.
Love this dude.
Richard Jaekel….heck of a good man and actor

Yes Mr Ben Johnson you deserved THAT BEAUTIFUL OSCAR . 💕💕💕
Sally Kellerman seems to be saying "let me get my teeth into that Lost Horizon role and next year it's MY turn for the Oscar!!! Or, my career wiil take a meteoric crash to oblivion."
Jeff Bridges was quite a hunk in his younger days!
