I got wondering about old and new movies and TV stars. There were some great ones that I remember well, both drama and western stars. Tyrone Power was an idol back when I was growing up. He died of a heart attack at the age of 44 while filming a sword fight. I can remember seeing him in a lot of movies.
And then there was Randolph Scott.
Do you remember him? He was around for a long time, managed to live to be 89 years old. I still see him in some good old western movies on the Western Channel.
But my favorite actor was Jack Elam, especially in westerns where he usually played the bad guy. He made a great bad guy, but I have seen him in stuff where he was the good guy. Don't matter, I always liked him and his acting and the faces that he made.
OK, now for a little test of your memory. How many of you know who the actor is in the picture below?
Did you guess who he is? He probably was better known when he got a little older than he is in this picture. Can you guess now? He even recorded a record. I am not sure if I should tell you now. Oh, what the heck, he is Walter Brennan. I don't think I would have recognized him from this picture. OK, enough movie trivia for today. I will have to turn on the boob tube and see what movies are on now. You all have a great day now, you hear?
