    Ben Johnson's Personal Colt SAA Sold thank you

    I have decided to sell BenJohnson's personal Colt SAA; he used it in The Train Robbers with the Duke and Ann Margaret. Itis marked Fox Studios and was shipped to California Hardware in 1930 and is a45 (of course). It comes with paperwork supporting it's provenance! Born inOklahoma, Ben Johnson was a ranch hand and rodeo performer when, in 1940,Howard Hughes hired him to take a load of horses to California. He decided tostick around (the pay was good), and for some years was a stunt man, horsewrangler, and double for such stars as John Wayne, Gary Cooper and JamesStewart. His break came when John Ford noticed him and gave him a part in anupcoming film, and eventually a star part in Wagon Master (1950). He leftHollywood in 1953 to return to rodeo, where he won a world roping championship,but at the end of the year he had barely cleared expenses. The movies paidbetter, and were less risky, so he returned to the west coast and a career thatsaw him in over 300 movies. Ben won an Academy Award and a PRCA Gold Buckle! I listed it for sale on GB but will sell it cheaperto a forum member - $5750 including shipping to the lower 48. There are additional documents as well. Thank you forlooking.
