Subject: RE: Obit: Jack Elam - RIP
Well we don't make that many great westerns anymore. They just sort of drifted away some how. Who are the great western actors now?
Robert Duval is just a great actor so I guess I have to count him. But I think it takes a character actor like the late Jack Elam to do westerns right.

Sam Elliot, Tom Selleck, Wilford Brimley, Tom Berenger, RG Armstrong,
Keith Caradine, Clint Eastwood are names that come to mind now. Who else is there?
