Jack Elam...November 13, 1920 - October 20, 2003. I once loved to hate this face. Then I grew to love it as my favorite Western Villain.

Jack Elam - Worked with him on "BIG BAD JOHN" in 1999. We were at Ryder's Sound Shooting ADR and later mixing the show and he and Jimmy Dean where there watching the process. Was very nice to meet him as I'm a Huge Western fan and grew up watching him in the movies as a kid!
