      John Ford and actor Harry Carey collaborated on at least 25 films in the years of 1917-1921.
      During these collaborations, Carey made more per film than Ford.
      By 1919 Ford was making 300 dollars a week, Carey was making 1,250.
      This differential in pay led to tension between the two.
