Oscar winning movies that Tom Tyler appeared in

Stagecoach
While Tom Tyler was never an Oscar nominee (the closest performance that would qualify is as Luke Plummer in “Stagecoach”), he did in fact appear in a number of Oscar-winning films in a support role. Some movies that he made were Oscar nominees, like “San Antonio” and “Talk of the Town”. Not surprisingly, three of these Oscar winners had John Ford directing: “Stagecoach”, “The Grapes of Wrath”, and “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon.” Here are the six Oscar-winning movies Tom Tyler appeared in:
