I forgot to "cue chorus" when I mentioned Randolph Scott (cue chorus!)

"The Professionals" is a film I've found interesting for the cast. It's a pretty interesting story but there are some big names and they're all pretty good together.

I've been enjoying him recently in some Randoloph Scott westerns. "Hangman's Knot", "Seven Men From Now" and my favorite bad guy in "Bad Day At Black Rock." Also really enjoyed him in his offbeat role in "Donovan's Reef." When he was bad he was among the baddest. He also made a good leader in stuff ...

Mike: You probably know but (just in case) two got to be in a western, even if it was only a TV western. Ed Harris was in "The New Riders of The Purple Sage" and Sam Shepherd was in a really offbeat western called "Purgatory." Both of these were courtesy of TNT. They would have been fine. (Of course...

Duke and Leo Gordon had a prior meeting in "Hondo." He played Geraldine Page's husband who was barely in the picture before their fight scene. Your mentioning Duke shoving that shotgun in Gordon's belly reminded me I just saw the scene the other night when a friend brought the mud fight scene to sho...

If America needed one there would be one. People would get together and do it. There must not be enough real interest.

Lynn: My thought, such as it is, would be that Stoddard wouldn't have realized the impact until after he had become a senator and probably well into his career. I doubt that he thought Hallie enjoyed him being in politics. He may have thought she enjoyed the social standing and income provided. That...

Didn't Wayne use the term "pilgrim" in "Liberty Valance"? (I'm not really sure.)

Dewey: I used to enjoy "Raymond" until he got to be such an idiot. The longer the show ran the more of an idiot he became and I couldn't stand him. In fact, that's part of my problem with sitcoms is that most of the men are weak and not very smart. The wife or the kids don't really respect him and h...

Anne: I'm not holding them blameless, I'm just not holding them fully responsible. It's worse in Europe. In my suburban Baltimore area it's about $2.95 per gallon.

Could be, but I don't think they own any of the oil fields in the Middle East or Africa or Russia or Venezuela or Mexico. One thing that will help is if Congress would get off of their fanny and allow the construction of new refineries. It's not always the oil as much as the refineries can't keep up...

Re: Stars in My Crown

Joel McCrea, like Randolph Scott (cue chorus) is one of the most underappreciated actors of his generation. Their careers seem to run parallel in a fashion. They started out doing regular pictures, dramas, comedies and end up almost exclusively in westerns. McCrea is wonderful in "Palm Beach Story"...
