Manly movies with Craggy heads

Jim "Bob" Smith here with the picks of the week. Check out Jack Palance in "The Silver Chalice" with Lorne Greene and Paul Newman, 1954. Jack can also be seen in "Attack" with Buddy Ebsen and Eddie Albert, 1956. Then we have Richard Boone in "Hombre" with Paul Newman, 1965. Boone is also starring in "The War Lord" with Charlton Heston, 1967, and "The Shootist" with John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart, 1976. And not to be missed is Kirk Douglas in "In Harm's Way" with John Wayne and Burgess Meredith, 1965. As a special added attraction we have Kirk in "The War Wagon" co-starring John Wayne. Enjoy!

Ren & Stimpy

1988 Fender Strat used on the R&S theme song for sale on e-bay, item # 250096398292. Signed and drawn on by Jim Smith and John K. The pictures on e-bay are much better than this one. I hate to sell it but when it rains ...that which does not make us sick ... somebody please give it a good home, just let me have visitation rights.
