A convincing cow-poke, even in Hollywood trappings. His later work was some of the best supporting acting in the movies.

He was born in the Bronx, but he was a man of the west. John Wayne paid tribute to him at the end of "The Searchers". Thanks for a good image.

Sometime if you get the chance, I really recommend a mid-thirties Carey movie "The Last Outlaw" which was budget-scuttled when John Ford was distracted to another production. Ford is credited as writer, and had he directed it, it would have been his final collaboration with Carey. Just wonderful, though.--It's about an outlaw who has to adjust to the modern world after a lengthy prison stretch (35 years, I think). Very wry look at Western myths--the guy winds up watching a Western with a singing cowboy, for example.
