    I used to love the Cisco Kid when I was a "kid" and never realized that Duncan Renaldo was in The Fighting Seabees. Hm-m-m-m, sounds like a good excuse to go watch that movie again . . . for the hundredth time - still love that bulldozer scene with the Japanese tank :D .

  • Amazing Arthur,


    I can't beleive that Jim Davis has been dead for 24 years. That's about 2 years less than Duke being dead, and I thought he died in the mid-eighties.


    Cheers B)

  • Hi Roland


    I knew of your interest in this person


    Believe it or believe it not In my notes, in my diary and checking on IMDB they all say Olaf Wieghorst, and yet I typed Olaf Wengraf. That's the trouble with writing this early in the morning before work, but thanks for pointing it out.


    The paintings at the beginning of ElDorado, the music and the commentary all helped to make the picture one of my favourites. Like you I wouldn't turn down one of his pintings if offered, but what are the chances of that.


    Where would you put him in regard to Remington?

    8 years ago the actor Scott Forbes died, An enigma he made his reputation in American films playing in American westers, and if you asked anyone about him they would swear that he was an American. The truth is he was born in High Wycombe and at one time adopted the name Julien Dallas. Moving to the United Staes he perfected his accent to the point where he was accepted as a natural American. He appeared in Operation Pacific.


    30 years ago the Singer Hall Johnson died most famous for the Hall Johnson choir.
