R.I.P. Legends Lost but Remembered


Actor Tab Hunter died last Sunday, July 8. He was eighty-six years old. Hunter played major parts in several Westerns, including Stuart Heisler’s The Burning Hills (1956, alongside Natalie Wood) and They Came to Cordura, directed by Robert Rossen in 1959, starring Gary Cooper and Rita Hayworth, as well as a small role in John Huston’s The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean (1972), starring Paul Newman (to name just the ones I’ve seen). In 1968, Hunter played the lead role in his only Italian Western, La vendetta è il mio perdono, directed by Roberto Mauri.
