Carey Jr in one of his final roles, in George P Cosmatos's 2003 western, 'Tombstone'

Harry Carey Jr: Actor who worked on John Ford's best-known films

Although he appeared in nearly one hundred films, the character actor Harry Carey Jr will always be associated with the screen western, and in particular the work of the great director, John Ford. He was the son of a major silent screen star, Harry Carey (1878-1947), who had been a real cowboy before taking up a career in films in 1910, later becoming a Ford regular. He is reputed to have introduced Ford to Wyatt Earp (1848-1929), whose reminiscences inspired Ford's masterpiece, My Darling Clementine (1946).
