Sorry if I'm doing something I shouldn't be doing but I received this, and seeing as a great number of us are Baby Boomer's I thought that it would be important to share and give us a look at our recent pass. Brought a tear to my eye.

Thank you for this. Only omission I noticed was a full rundown of the original Magnif 7 — Brynner, McQueen, Bucholtz, Bronson, Vaughn Dexter, Coburn; + of course the villainous Wallach ~~ some, but not all, of these were there.
But what a great clip indeed.
Ah, those 1930s pre-WWii Saturday mornings with my big sister at the Mickey Mouse Club at the Regal, Finchley Road ~~ Buck Jones, Ken Maynard, Gary Cooper et al... The days when the hero wore a white hat and was always tidy & clean-cut & smooth-chinned even after a month riding alone thru the desert & had a marvellous knack of firing 14 shots from a 6-chamber revolver without ever going thru the formality of reloading; but the villain always wore a black hat and never shaved & his trigger went click just at the crucial moment he had drawn a bead on the hero! Wasn't life simpler in those days!
Ah, nostalgia ~~~~
