Appropriate for Chickenhearted's recent "What's the Title..." threads:

Randolph Scott is memorialized at:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=3037



“Everybody knows when you go to the show
You can't take the kids along
You've gotta read the paper and know the code
Of G, PG and R and X
And you gotta know what the movie's about
Before you even go
Tex Ritter's gone and Disney's dead
And the screen is filled with sex

Whatever happened to Randolph Scott
Ridin' the trail alone
Whatever happened to Gene and Tex
And Roy and Rex, the Durango kid
Oh whatever happened to Randolph Scott
His horse, plain as can be
Whatever happened to Randolph Scott
Has happened to the best of me

Everybody's tryin' to make a comment
About our doubts and fears
"True Grit"s the only movie
I've really understood in years
You gotta take your analyst along
To see if it's fit to see
Whatever happened to Randolph Scott
Has happened to the industry

Whatever happened to Johnny Mack Brown
And Alan Rocky Lane
Whatever happened to Lash Larue
I'd love to see them again
Whatever happened to smiley Burnett
Tim Holt and Gene Autry
Whatever happened to all of these
Has happened to the best of me

Whatever happened to Randolph Scott
Has happened to the industry”
(The Statler Brothers)

RAN-DOLPH SCO-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T!!

no way was i goin to be left off this thread!!

love the song recordman, although they do seem scarily serious for what is a very silly song!
And storyteller, thats class!! one of mel brooks best gags, and the funniest comedy film moment since shellshocked lieutenant Horowitz thought he was Ethel Merman - and it was Ethel Merman!!

He's doing fine, apparently. This past week TCM devoted 24 hours to his films, including My Favorite Wife, The Tall T and Ride The High Country.

I doubt anyone remembers the late Milo O'Shea's UK TV comedy series 'Me Mammy' in which he played a mother-dominated henpecked Irish bachelor who lived with his mother.

Her catchphrase was, 'Oh that Randaloff Scott ... I just love that Randaloff Scott ...'

Randolph Scott vs. Lee Marvin
One of the great "western" duels on film. "Seven Men from Now" (1956)

SPOILERS

I'll bet you know who did that nice score, Recordman. George Dunng? (And how 'bout some credit for the writer & director. Would that be Burt Kennedy & Budd Boetticher -- I know they collaborated on a lot of those great Scott westerns in the 50's.)

BTW, according to Scott's golfing buddy and twice co-star Fred Astaire, Scott's nickname was "The Sheriff."

I yield to your expertise on this Preston. I do know that NY Times credits the "music" to Henry Vars

Anytime you're ready, sheriff?

He thinks he's gonna get him. What he doesnt know is that what he thinks is also what the other fella thinks. But, the other fella - being a mite too modest about saying that he's gonna be the one to actually get him - knows that by the time the other fella realises that he's not really the one to get him because he will have been got by him who got him - then he will have bit the dust because in the end he didn't really get him, did he? You got that?
