Howdy Manco!!

Walter Brennan has to be one of the top 5 greatest supporting actors ever, and he had 3 Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor to prove it. First appearing in 1925, he had already appeared in dozens of films, when he snagged the part of Judge Roy Bean in The Westerner and then My Darling Clementine in 1946. Walter Brennan would go on to appear in some of the greatest films of our time, like Red River, The Far Country, Sergeant York, Drums Across The River, Bad Day At Black Rock, How The West Was Won, Rio Bravo, along with at least 3 t.v. series, The Real McCoys, The Guns Of Will Sonnett and The Over The Hill Gang. He could play drama or comedy and sometimes combined them in his films like Rio Bravo. Walter Brennan was ' as good as it gets" and todays actors would do well to study his films.

Jack Perrin was an American actor, who specialized in B-westerns. His career spanned 1917-1960's. First appearing in Luke's Lost Liberty, he would go on to appear in Riders Of The Plains, Waterhole, The Purple Vigilantes and many more.

Woody Strode first appeared in Sundown in 1941. A former decathlete and football player at U.C.L.A, he played for the Los Angeles Rams in the N.F.L. Next appearing in Demetrius And The Gladiators and The Ten Commandments, he became friends with John Ford and was cast in 4 of Ford's films, like Seven Women, Two Rode Together, and as the Duke's handyman, Pompei in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence and his most memorable role as Sergeant Rutledge in the film of the same name. He only worked with Sergio Leone for the opening scenes in Leone's masterpiece, Once Upon A Time In The West, but who will ever forget Strode as one of the three gunfighters, along with Jack Elam, sent to deal with "Harmonica" (Charles Bronson) and Strode standing under the leak in the water tower, with the water drippng onto his stetson, before he took his stetson off and drank the water, while waiting on the train??

Michael Chapin is a former child star actor, who first appeared in the 1944 film, The Fighting Sullivans. Although his career only lasted about 15 years, he nevertheless managed to appear in some big name films, like The Farmer's Daughter, Springfield Rifle and with Robert Mitchum in The Night Of The Hunter.
