Very true. I loved watching his [The Duke] westerns, but I don't think I could ever call him a good actor. Perhaps his best performance was when he was filming his own end, so to speak, in The Shootist, and I did like him in True Grit.  Glen Campbell was so bad in that film, it made Wayne look like Olivier.

Which Davis were you referring to?

Actually, Bette is how she spelled it. Her filmography and bio information available at IMDb.  She was rather amazing.  She had the lead in a TV mini-series that gave me nightmares -- The Dark Secret of Harvest Home. I think there is an abridged version out there, but to my knowledge, the full length movie was never released.

Well, one right and one wrong wins you a "Close, but no cigar!"   Staying warm, I trust, Sir Ironhead?
