Lafayette Escadrille (1958) - In Good Company Clint Eastwood's first scene, as the Yanks (David Janssen, Jody McCrea, Tab Hunter, William Wellman Jr., as his dad) spend their first night in France, the de facto honor roll being much of the point for narrator, director and producer William A. Wellman, in Lafayette Escadrille, 1958.
Merrill's Marauders (1962) - Take The Point Kolowicz (Claude Akins) reminds Stock (Ty Hardin) he's the platoon leader, causing him to order Bullseye (Peter Brown) to the point, Merrill (Jeff Chandler) in command, re-enacting an actual battle in 1944 Burma, in Samuel Fuller's Merrill's Marauders, 1962.
Shooting, The (1967) - A Good Friend Shot Dead Little revealed in the credits except that Warren Oates (as “Gashade”) is riding alone and somewhat irritated, when he comes upon traces of maybe nutty Coley (Will Hutchins), opening director Monte Hellman’s The Shooting, 1967, co-produced by co-star Jack Nicholson.
Shooting, The (1967) - I Don't Give A Curly Hair Gashade (Warren Oates) and sidekick Coley (Will Hutchins) are working as trackers for Millie Perkins, who still hasn’t revealed her name or her business, but they were joined the evening before by the taciturn Billy Spear (Jack Nicholson), evidently a hired gun, in Monte Hellman’s The Shooting, 1967.
Shooting, The (1967) - Straight Ahead A Bit To The Right Director Monte Hellman starts taking liberties with the narrative, as Gashade (Warren Oates) has confiscated the gun of goofy Coley (Will Hutchins), who’s friend was murdered by parties unknown, as they are approached by a stranger who turns out to be Millie Perkins, in The Shooting, 1967.
Clambake - Confidence Not a musical high point for Elvis Presley, as "Scott," with sidekick Tom (Will Hutchins) leading kids on a Florida playground in Confidence and time-filling stunts, in Clambake, 1967.
