Indeed, Roger E. is going to be peeved when he sees how we've been talking all over his thread!
I've seen Ride the High Country but don't remember Warren Oates' part now, he might have been a young cowhand type? Have you seen In the Heat of the Night
? (It's one of my all time favorites, if that matters.) He has a great part as a police officer. His interaction with greasy spoon cook is priceless. Here's
a video that shows a just a bit of that, but also more of his character.
I've been meaning to see Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia for years now. I guess I was waiting for my library to get it, but now I've added it to netflix. Whenever I hear that title it reminds me of the scene in Fletch
where Fletch is posing as a doctor (Dr. Rosenrosen, lol).
: Can I get you something?
: Yeah, do you have the Beatles' White Album? Never mind, just get me a glass of hot fat. And bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia.
The Movie Murderer looks good, I'd enjoy seeing an old tv movie like that. Noticed Elisha Cook Jr. also had a part in it.
Thought about making a new thread for this post, but it might be awkward to start in mid-conversation.
