As posted by others, I caught this on TCM and was amazed ! A half hour TV drama with John Wayne, directed by John Ford. From the date, I'll place this just after Wayne's I Love Lucy appearance. Instead of the actor/director craft, I'd just like to mention the timing. Right on the cusp of the movie/TV revolution/evolution. The stars of the biggest, co-existing with the craft of, the smallest. John Wayne went on to more TV later on, mostly as a guest on friend's shows, Red Skelton, Jack Benny, Dean Martin, etc. But, John Ford, being a director, went on to unheralded roles as the same. Check out a long sought after episode of Wagon Train, or, Flashing Spikes, (which I actually saw with baseball commentary by a long gone uncle). In the early days, the film stars avoided TV, as earlier stage stars avoided film !?! Yeah, right !
