  • John Ford's 50 year old in joke finally exposed

    Hi Guys, Wagon Train - Season 4 E09 The Colter Craven Story - YouTube Check out the 42:30 mark at the above link for the Wagon Train episode, "The Colter Craven Story" directed by John Ford. In the scene where Adams(Ward Bond) meets General Grant at Shiloh, other officers approach. General Sherman rides up and says, "Sam, Buells up. Means we can resume fighting in the morning." But it is without a doubt Duke Wayne's voice and knowing that, you can easily discern it's Wayne in the darkly lit scene. The credits(can't see them on Youtube, I saw them on tv the other day) say Michael Morris played Sherman. Wayne's real name is Marion Michael Morrison. Wayne previously portrayed Sherman in How the West Was Won where he is seen talking with Grant at Shiloh in a scene staged so like this episode there can be doubt the Wagon Train version is an in joke as both were directed by Ford. Other members(Ken Curtis, Hank Worden,) of the John Ford stock company also appear in this episode with Ford favorite Ward Bond. (Ford also includes in this episode, as he did in many of his films such as The Searchers, a lingering shot of Ward Bond from behind to highlight his enormous rear end, just to tick Bond off)
