Are you Gene Hackman who played Little Bill in Unforgiven and the President in Absolute Power?

I've got another idea...  but rather than ask, let me try a "narrowing down" question, just in case.

Were you in scenes with Clint in both films?

The answer to Dannyman's question is No (Hackman couldn't shut up to save his life in either film).

The answer to Matt's question is Yes.

If I count Dannyman's first question, we're at six clues right now ... but I'll give you another chance. ;)

No ... I guess I win.

I am Chief Dan George, who talked a lot in The Outlaw Josey Wales, after having had almost nothing to say in High Plains Drifter. (I think his only line in the latter is "No.")

wow -  thought i read he had never acted before ojw  :o
so never checked on it - now a bit of history reading

or course remember him now in little big man
and he never studied acting

gee he was born 1899 - to 1981 - the changes he must have seen in that time

he was a good poet so poignant the losing of the tribal lands and all the animals

"O Great Spirit whose voice I hear in the winds,
I come to you as one of your many children.
I need your strength and your wisdom.
Make me strong not to be superior to my brother,
but to be able to fight my greatest enemy:

"Myself"



The Wolf Ceremony
I wanted to give something of my past to my grandson.
So I took him into the woods, to a quiet spot.
Seated at my feet he listened as I told him
of the powers that were given to each creature.
He moved not a muscle as I explained
how the woods had always provided us
with food, homes, comfort, and religion.
He was awed when I related to him
how the wolf became our guardian,
and when I told him that I would sing
the sacred wolf song over him, he was overjoyed.
In my song, I appealed to the wolf
to come and preside over us
while I would perform the wolf ceremony
so that the bondage between my grandson
and the wolf would be lifelong.
I sang.
In my voice was the hope that clings to every heartbeat.
I sang.
In my words were the powers I inherited from my forefathers.
I sang.
In my cupped hands lay a spruce seed-- the link to creation.
I sang.
In my eyes sparkled love.
I sang.
And the song floated on the sun's rays from tree to tree.
When I had ended,
it was if the whole world listened with us
to hear the wolf's reply.
We waited a long time
but none came.
Again I sang,
humbly but as invitingly as I could,
until my throat ached and my voice gave out.
All of a sudden
I realized why no wolves
had heard my sacred song.
There were none left!
My heart filled with tears.
I could no longer give my
grandson faith
in the past, our past.
At last I could whisper to him: " It is finished!"
"Can I go home now?" He asked,
checking his watch to see if he
would still be in time to
catch his favorite program on TV.
I watched him disappear and wept in silence.
All is finished!

Vik, can you please give us a link to where you found that poetry? Thanks.  ;)

Also, it would be better to set it off using the "Insert quote" button. Just select or "highlight" the quote after you've pasted it into the message box, and click the button ...

That's correct, Dannyman. Did you know that he was descended from Lee? I only just found that out.  8)

Yeah I did know that! That's like a cool trivia question, I was surprised when I heard that about Duvall.

Here's the next one...

1.) Before becoming an actor I was in the navy

2.) I was "bad" in an Eastwood film ;)


Who am I...?

Danny, are you looking for THE[/i] Bad, himself?

That would be Lee Van Cleef who was in both For a Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.


P.S. Vik, I really enjoyed reading Chief's poetry! Thanks for posting it.   :)

I won an Oscar at the age of 72!

I've written screenplays for films that Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy starred in (based on my own marriage).

Who am I?
