   StormCnter  Only the oldest of us will remember this face. When my family got our first television, I was 9. This guy's old cowboy movies were shown on Saturdays. I was enchanted, but got my heart broken with my friend (a boy ) laughed at me and told me he was at least 60 or 70 by then because the movies were ancient. Can anyone name this actor?

   Gram77  Hey Storm, I am waaay out on my limb. Hoot Gibson? I'm going to be laughed off this site. : )

   StormCnter  Nothing to laugh about. He's not Hoot Gibson, but it's the same era.

   MeiDei  Ho-Ho I've saved a photo for your return - it looks mighty similar to this one; will pass on guessing just in case it's different ; )

   StormCnter  You guys and gals stayed really busy with movie fun. I'm sorry I missed it.
My long-time friend saw this film over the weekend. She's a huge Sam Elliott fan. With ten minutes to go, the film equipment broke down, the audience waited and waited and were finally given tickets to return at another time. My friend's lament is "How did the movie end?" I don't know, but maybe one of you has seen it.

   MeiDei  1953 movie - can you name it from the following write-up?

"CPO Samuel T. McHale loves life in the Navy and has been in the service for 16 years, so when he learns that his expertise is needed at one of the US Navy's weather stations he is not impressed. He goes about his job in a professional manner and almost 6 months later is looking forward to the hand over to the next team. But things become complicated when the Japanese step up their search of the deserts looking for the weather stations and McHale turns to Kengtu, a Nomadic chief, for help to escape the Japanese and lead them to the coast and safety in return for 60 saddles for their horses".
