Looks like that and lived to 96.  I bet he buried a lot of gym rat friends too.  Good on you actor sir.

Which is the way he wants it.

His delivery of that speech in Cool Hand Luke is just perfect.  You know instantly he's given that speech dozens, maybe hundreds, of times before, and the real point of the speech is very clear: we'll find a reason to put you in the box if we really want to put you in the box.

I like him and all...but Sheriff J.W. Pepper was one of the worst things about the Moore years.

\worst was James Bond in farking clown makeup. Period.

Looking at his IMDB listing, I've seen a dozen of his movies, and a godawful number of his TV show appearances.

Heck, he was in Supertrain, one of the great Bad TV moments.

I only just recently found out about Supertrain. I must witness it at least once.

No matter how talented the cast it always comes down to writers.

Bologna made a career appearing in shiatbomb after shiatbomb.

In the 1930s, James got work with the Civilian Conservation Corps and then entered World War II in 1942 as a soldier with the U.S. Army in the South Pacific, receiving two Purple Hearts, a Bronze Star and a Silver Star.

Lynn James said one of the Purple Hearts came when a bullet pierced his helmet and zipped around the inside to come out and split his nose. The second Purple Heart, she said, came from shrapnel that knocked out many of his teeth.


Funnyman was a bad ass as well.  Godspeed Mr. James...
