Richard Harris – Cowboy – Pt 1

3 Jan

I’ve been working on a profile of Richard Harris Westerns for several days. It’s turned into another large venture. Mainly because the first movie on the list is Major Dundee (1965) – directed by Sam Peckinpah. Nearly anything that involves Sam Peckinpah is surrounded by storylines that are almost as interesting and incredible as the Movie itself.

Richard Harris would be be yet anther distinguished Actor/Move Star, whom we probably wouldn’t readily associate with Westerns. Yet he Starred or appeared in eight Westerns – ranging in quality from the rather awful to outright Classic. But most of them were good – and he, himself, was never awful in any.

Coming up:

    I like Richard Harris — he was a diverse actor and seemed to like playing in Westerns. Looking forward to your series.

      I like Harris .. a rebel I suppose. But a great Artist who did some worthy work.
