Same Actor, Two Characters: "The Sons of Katie Elder" (John Wayne, 1965)(video)

It's common for an actor to play multiple parts in a fantasy or comedy film such as "The Wizard of Oz", "Dr. Strangelove", or "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."

But not so common in a relatively realistic film such as the John Wayne western "The Sons of Katie Elder."

Here, familiar character actor Karl Swenson plays two totally unrelated characters.

First, Swenson is the local bartender.

Later, Duke summons Old Doc Isdell to tend to his wounded brother.

And Old Doc Isdell is played guessed it...Karl Swenson. 

Same actor, two unrelated characters.  Totally random!

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
