Carying on with the movie theme, my favorite Ben Johnson flick is The Last Picture show.  I believe he won best support actor for it.  Think it really captured him as an aging modern cowboy, lost dreams, past loves.  Also the cinematography of that small texas town was incredible to me.  Grew up in such a small town similar to that and had a room mate in college who was from such a town in Texas.  Can still remember going to my home town theatre when the 3 of us would be the only ones in there.  Bogdonavich made a good decision in filming in black and white.
