"There are countless horrible things happening all over the world and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible." -Auberon Waugh
Clint Walker was a wonderful actor in whatever genre, but his westerns were my favorites. I don't know if it was because of Memorial Day or Clint's passing, or both, but The Dirty Dozen was on last night. May Clint rest in peace.
This is a wiki story so...apparently in '71 he fell off a ski lift, a ski pole pierced his heart, a doctor detected a faint sign of life and rushed him to the table, 2 months later he was up and moving.
I also liked what some critic said, "...something winning about his taciturn earnestness as an actor..."A working man who let us interpret his characters as we saw fit instead of bludgeoning us with something and maybe someone smarter can complete my thought here.
