An unusually detailed look at one of Hollywood's long-time leading character actors, Ben Johnson--the epitome of the Western man. Part-Irish and part-Cherokee, the rugged Oklahoma native worked as a cowboy from age 11; Johnson arrived in tinsel town in a carload of horses, as a wrangler delivering steeds to Howard Hughes for "The Outlaw" (USA/1943), prior to being discovered by director John Ford.
