Not a movie , but Bruce Dern was one of the good guys in Stoney Burke , a TV show from the early 60s. Was one of Jack Lord's sidekicks. I liked his role in the movie Posse , with Kirk Douglas.

Not a good guy , but interesting character.

Haven't seen The Shootist in decades, and not familiar with El Dorado........

 

Darn near choked on my drink when I read that!

 

What? That's almost unAmerican. Go get and watch it.

 

Are you still sitting there? Go get it NOW!!!

Have you seen Rio Bravo with Dean Martin and Rick Nelson? El Dorado was pretty much the same movie story with a different cast. Had Robert Mitchum in it.

Rio Lobo is just a little divergent from those two. Mitchum's son and Jack Elam are two of the supporting cast.

I have most of the Duke's westerns. Just a few of the real early ones I didn't care for. Bruce Dern made quite a few movies, but never got the recognition he should have gotten. He sure played a rat in his earlier ones. Seems he was type cast to be a bad guy.

How 'bout the bartender in The Shootist?

 

Or the cute girl in El Dorado?

 

As near as I can find, Bruce Dern wasn't in "The Shootist." He isn't listed in the cast on the Internet Movie Database here:

The white-haired bartender was played by Ralph Volkie

Murray the bartender was played by Charles G. Martin -- he may be the one you're thinking of as he bore a slight resemblence to Dern.

Lomax (Kirk Douglas) - "Mine hit the ground first."

 

Taw Jackson (John Wayne) - "Mine was taller."

Pretty much? If it wasn't for Caan and his "El Dorado" poem, you couldn't tell which movie you were watching.

I think Forty Rod was talking about Wayne getting shot in the back and not Bruce Dern.

I think Wayne got shot in the back in "Sands of Iwo Jima"

Silent Running, Huey, Duey and Luey's headlight was a Lucas fog light, I had the same light mounted under the headlight on my 1971 Norton 750 Commando.

I thought he was saying that Dern played the bartender in the Shootist (there are two, one shoots Wayne in the back). Maybe I misunderstood. If so, my apologies.

I saw him "Madison", with James Cezieval(sp?) about Iowa river racing and he was an old mechanic in it, he played a good guy, good movie too for those of you in the MIdwest and remember the competitions.

He was a fairly sympathetic judge in 'All the Pretty Horses" to Matt with the bullet hole and misfortunes he encounter.

Check out "Drive He Said" directed by Jack Nicholson. Dern plays the ultimate a**hole basketball coach. Ya just wanna smack him! Great actor.
