[quote=“stanton, post:13, topic:454”]Good description.
I also think that Mitchell is good, and Anthony Ghidra (like Bill san Antonio said) would be really good (cause he’s a better actor and much more charismatic).
The idea of a younger actor is, that it could have been a greater success, could have been developed starmaking qualities, and could have been so much more influential.
With a typical SW lead nobody would have labelled Minnesota Clay as american influenced.[/quote]
Good point. Mitchell cuts anything but an iconic figure and probably is not’sexy’ enough to have made this film really popular and influential. For me though, he is right for the part as it was presented. He is clearly older, physically worn out, even shuffling in some parts which is how Clay has become from too many years of gunfighting and travelling.
I’m just glad I got around to seeing this movie. It eluded me for years.
