Howdy Manco!!

Tyrone Power was a Hollywood icon from the 1930's into the 1950's. His dark good looks made him a matinee idol. Primarily know for his swashbuckling films, like The Black Swan, The Black Rose, The Captain From Castille, he did make a couple of westerns, like Jesse James and The Mark Of Zorro. He died from a massive heart attack at the young age of 44, while filming a swordfight scene, for his last movie, with his good friend, George Sanders.

Bing Russell was one of the most prolific character actors in Hollywood during the 50's, 60's and 70's.He appeared in The Magnificent Seven, Rio Bravo, The Horse Soldiers and in many of the t.v. westerns like Rawhide, Maverick, and was a regular on the t.v. series Bonanza. He is also the father of actor Kurt Russell, who began as a child star in the 60's and made the transition to a box office star in films like, Escape From New York, The Thing, Overboard, Tango And Cash, and is still acting today.

I first saw actor Will Hutchins in the role that he is probably best remembered for as the star of Sugarfoot, a Warner Bros. western, in which Hutchins played a wandering Lawyer in the ole west. This series was developed, when Clint Walker, the star of the popular series, Cheyenne, went on strike against Warner Bros. during the 50's. The series Sugarfoot and Bronco Lane, starring Ty Hardin, replaced Cheyenne, until Walker came back and then rotated on a weekly basis with Cheyenne. Huchins has also appeared with Elvis Presley in a couple of Presley films, like Clambake and Spinout.

Lance Henriksen is one of those rare actors that can transition from supporting/character actor to leading man and back without a hitch. He is probably best known for his roles in the Alien films, although the role of The Terminator was originally written for him. He has appeared in several westerns, like Gunfighter's Moon, Dead Man and The Quick And The Dead and has also starred in several horror films, like the Pumpkin Head series of films. He also does voice over work for many animated films, because of his easily recognizable voice.

Bing Russell was in a western with Errol Flynn called Without Incident (Playhouse 90 on TV) and as good a actor as Flynn is, there was a scene in a saloon on a stairway between Bing and Errol, and in my opinion, Bing stole the scene. Of course he had the doialogue to do that with, but he shone as an actor. Another one of the really nice guys that Jim andd I had the pleasure to know.

Will Hutchins is as nice a guy off screen as his character of Sugarfoot is on screen. And he is a funny guy as will, his wit at writing is reminiscent of another named Rogers. In less than a month I will have the plesasure of watching he and Roberta Shore (of "The Virginian") perform the two character stageplay of "Love Letters."

Just watched Tyrone Power a few nights ago in the western, "Pony Soldier." a good western set in Canada that co-starred Cameron Mitchell & Robert Horton.

Lance Henricksen makes a good villain in films like Apaloosa. One of the good actors working in today's movies that is fun to watch do his thing.

I think the first thing I'd seen Lance Henricksen in was Damien: Omen II as an instructor at the military school Damien went to who happened to be one of the Devil's minions. He was good as the android Bishop in Aliens, as Ring Shelton in Appaloosa, and as the cannibal bounty hunter Cole Wilson in Dead Man.
