He was great in Tombstone, along with Kilmer and Boothe.  Speaking of Westerns, one of my favorite Westerns wasn't even set in The West.  I enjoyed watching it last night for the zillionth time.  The rifle is pretty much the star, even with Selleck in it.



He had one of those careers in which he played the part of Magnum P.I. so well that people couldn't shift attention to his other roles.

Just a hair under one hundred and twenty bucks right before you get to Joplin, Missouri.

After a long hard day of driving, a trucker needs a hard drink. Not just any old beverage, but one that will calm the nerves after having to keep a steeled eye on the road, ensuring the safety of their fellow travelers.
No, not just any drink will do that...
That driver needs something strong enough to let them know that the day is done, and that iron grip on the steering wheel can be released, and the guard can be let down.
That will take one special drink, indeed.
That truck driver needs to know that they did their part in answering the wants and needs of the American citizenry.
No, not just any beverage will do that...
That special drink is Souix City Sarsparilla.
Only Souix City Sarsparilla has the power to quench a thirst like that. With a bold and smooth taste, made with pure cane sugar and other fine ingredients, they can rest assured that every attempt has been made to meet the high standard of today's modern driver.
And with a bottle full of golden caramel Souix City Sarsparilla: it's our little way of saying "You done good, driver. Welcome home."





I can hear that one guy reading that whole post out loud in its entirety in my head...

Hehe.

While watching Quigley, I almost expected him to grab his Sharps and hop in a Ferrari, instead of on a real horse.

Some of his movie choices were bad. Or so bad there were good (like "Folks!")  but he found his own in some Westerns and now, later, as Jesse Stone made-for-tv movies and in Bluebloods.
