Howdy Manco!!

Don Keefer began his film career in 1947 and his last role was in 1997. He has appeared in The Way We Were, Sleeper, Liar, Liar and Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid. He has also played various roles on every t.v. series from the 50's -90's, including Richard Diamond, Rawhide, Have Gun Will Travel and his longest lasting role was 10 episodes of Gunsmoke, as various characters. A very versatile actor, who is 96 years old today.

Shelley Winters was simply one of the best actresses, ever to appear in film. A 2 time Academy Award winner for The Diary Of Anne Frank and A Patch Of Blue, she began acting in 1943 and appeared in such films as Red River, Winchester 73, Night Of The Hunter and The Poisedon Adventure. This 5 foot, 4 inch blonde bombshell started out as a sex symbol, but eventually showed everyone in Hollywood, she was as good as it gets!!

Joan Taylor began her film career in an excellent western, with a fine cast, Fighting Man Of The Plains. She also appeared in War Paint, Apache Women and Fort Yuma. After 1957, her career was mostly in t.v., except for a couple of b-Sci-fi films. She appeared on The Rifleman, Wagon Train, Rawhide, My Three Sons and many other popular t.v. series of the time.

Grant Williams will probably be best remembered for his role in, The Incredible Shrinking Man, Brain Of Blood and a few other sci-fi films, but earlier in his career, he appeared in, Written On The Wind, Away All Boats, The Lone Texan, Showdown At Abilene and P.T 109, as well as many appearances on t.v.

Robert Redford started out in the late 50's as just another pretty face, He made the rounds of the popular t.v. series of the time, including The Virginian, The Twilight Zone, Whispering Smith and .Dr Kildare, before getting his big break in films like, This Property Condemned, Three Days Of The Condor, The Way We Were, The Great Gatsby, Jeremiah Johnson, Butch Casssidy And The Sundance Kid, The Sting, The Horse Whisperer and THEN, like Clint Eastwood, he decided he could also DIRECT and he proved it with films like, A River Runs Through It, The Legend Of Bagger Vance, The Horse Whisperer and The Milagro Beanfield War.

Happy 76th Birthday .Mr Redford and thanks for all the wonderful memories.

Madeleine Stowe started in TV in the late '70s/early '80s. Her first movie was Stakeout with Richard Dreyfus and Emilio Estevez. She later starred in Last of the Mohicans, Unlawful Entry, Bad Girls, The General's Daughter, and We Were Soldiers. More recently she has been a regular in 2 TV series: Raines and Revenge.

Christian Slater was a star on the rise in the early '90s, appearing in the films Pump Up the Volume, Young Guns II, Mobsters, True Romance, Interview with the Vampire, and Murder in the First. While his star didn't rise as high, he still has been in several movies and TV series.

Christopher Jones was a student of Lee Strasberg's Actor's Studio, and was briefly married to Strasberg's daughter, actress Susan Strasberg. He had the lead role in the TV series The Legend of Jesse James. His acting career was brief, only 5 years, in which he appeared in the films Ryan's Daughter, Wild in the Streets, and The Looking Glass War. He returned for one film, Mad Dog Time, in 1996. He turned down the role of Zed in Pulp fiction.
