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.
But I’m just trying to get started on this thing …
(1 October 1930 – 25 October 2002)
Stage and Film Actor, Singer, Theatrical and Song producer,
Film Director and Writer … drinker … raconteur …
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.
