    Hi Arthur - I always liked Richard Jordan. He was in a number of movies, including "Valdez Is Coming," "Logan's Run," "Raise the Titanic" and "The Hunt For Red October" (which I thought was one of his best roles). It's too bad he died so young.

  • Douglas wasn't a Senator (they're in a territory, anyway, not a state), he was, I think, the guy in charge of land management. Now I have an excuse to go watch "McLintock" again to check that out. :lol: :lol:
