Wow!

The Warren Oates question of the day is..
In the movie the Wild Bunch, he and Ben Johnson played the Gorch brothers.
What were their first names and who was who?




If you get it right, you gotta post another Warren question of the day.

This isn't fair! Shouldn't we be doing Warren Oates trivia after we've read the book?

Can I at least read a Cliff Notes version of the book first?

Burt Kennedy:


...when I do a script and some actor changes his lines, I get furious. The late great Warren Oates used to say to me, "Why don't I say this instead of the way it's written?" I used to say, "Warren, say anything you can remember."

I guess you could say I'm mellowing, although... there's a fine line between mellowing and not giving a shit.
