Day 328-- stock companies

I've always been interested in acting stock companies; the idea of a bunch of actors that regularly work together just intrigues me.

The basis for this interest lies with the John Ford's stock company (it's quite an impressive list). The famous American director constantly used the same actors for his movies; more often than not, his entire supporting cast was made up of his 'regulars.'

And the thing is, they were talented. I'd put a dream team of Ward Bond, Victor McLaglen, John Qualen, Ben Johnson, Harry Carey Jr. and Woody Strode against any gaggle of actors, living or dead.
