Howdy Manco!!

Joseph Cotton first won critical acclaim with his role in Orson Wells' Citizen Kane. He followed that up with The Magnificent Ambersons. He appeared in such westerns as Duel In The Sun, The Haliday Brand and The Last Sunset.

Andre DeToth was both a writer and director during the 40's and 50's. He received an Academy Award nomination for co-writing the film Gunfighter. He also directed films like, Springfield Rifle, and Day Of The Outlaw.

William Witney became one of the youngest directors in Hollywood at the age of 21 for Republic studios. He directed innumerable B-westerns for them. In 1956, he began directing for t.v. He directed episodes of such favorites as, Frontier Doctor, Bonanza, Laramie, Branded, Wild Wild West and too many more to list here.

Joseph Wiseman was a Canadian born actor, who appeared in several films of note, such as Viva Zapata opposite Marlon Brando. He was Sean Connery's protagonist in the first James Bond FIlm .Dr No. He also appeared in a couple of good westerns, as a gambler in Lawman, but I will always remember him for his spooky performance as the the old Confederate soldier and Indian fighter in another of Burt Lancaster's westerns, The Unforgiven. His performance as he was hanged was unforgettable.

Joseph Cotton stars in 2 of my favorite movies: Citizen Kane and The Third Man, both with Orson Wells. But another movie he's in that I really enjoy is Alfred Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt with Theresa Russell and McDonald Carey. If you're a Hitchcock fan, you'll love that movie.

Joseph Wiseman may be the Bond Villain with the least screen time! He's only in about the last 20 minutes of the movie! But like Ed said, he's really good in The Unforgiven. In the mid 1980s, he played Manny Weisbord in Crime Story. His character is loosely based on real life mobster Meyer Lansky.
