Oh, to see “Bachelor Flat” !
Incidentally, Paul, the header on my site today shows Ben Johnson in a roping contest at a rodeo before he got into movies.
Ooops — the banner in question, since changed, depicted Ben Johnson’s father, a rodeo champion in his day. Thanks to Paula Vitaris for this info, who also notes that Ben, Jr. didn’t start entering rodeos until after he’d worked in the movies and had money for the entrance fees. She further notes that he remains (and I’m sure will always remain) the only man to win both a rodeo world championship and an Oscar.
