Our pic for today is a publicity still from William A. Graham‘s Waterhole #3 (1967), co-produced by an uncredited Blake Edwards. Timothy’s seemingly part-goat outlaw Hilb is on the trail of some Confederate gold, along with James Coburn, Carroll O’Connor, and Claude Akins.
Coburn, with whom I share a birthday, seemed to specialize in rascals and ne’er-do-wells that you nevertheless couldn’t help liking in spite of it all. He always managed to light up the screen, even when he was only voicing a character, as he did in one of his final films, Monsters Inc. (2001).
I’m sure you know that the Warner Archive Collection will be releasing Waterhole #3 on September 10. 😉
Actually I didn’t, Paula! Thanks! It’s been out on Paramount for quite some time now, in widescreen too, so I’m not sure what this new release will bring to the table. Still, looking forward to checking it out!
