Please indulge me.

Who is Jan Michael Vincent?

Here you go, from Wikipedia:

Jan- Michael Vincent

Other than the tv show Airwolf, his most notable appearance on film is probably The Mechanic, with Charles Bronson.

We have a winner!

The winner of the "Please Indulge Me, Who Is Jan Michael Vincent? Contest" is................

JED COOPER!

My personal check for $1 million US tax paid will be in the mail as soon as I can write it without violating the bad-check-law and can squeeze it into my budget. I advise that you do not count on it being within an early or critical time frame.

For all the other participants....Thanx! Gorsh, I didn't know you could look up thangs on the INTERNET. From now on, when I am having a conversation with a friend, instead of using their question as an entree to my friendly comment in response, I can tell my friend..."Look it up!". This is a great relief to me, taking a lot of stress off my shoulders about my inadequacy to interact in human social relationships.

Now I gotta somehow find my GBU DVD and indulge myself in watching this interesting bit of information. You never know when the smallest bit of information can be vitally important.

Ok, I'll hold off on booking that vacation trip to Hawaii.   8) 

Remember, Perry said that the guy in GBU is a 'dead ringer' for Jan-Michael Vincent, so it isn't actually him.  I agree, though, they do look very much alike.

Wow, did THIS take a long time to find!  Here's the soldier Blondie gives his cigar to near the end of the film.  Best I could find.

.......Actually, Jan-Michael Vincent did some very good work in the 70's. He did a TV Movie in 1970 called Tribes with Darrin McGavin which he got kudos for.

I'm a bit surprised with the results of the poll though! There's only seven votes, but still... none for For a Few Dollars More? I prefer that one to A Fistful of Dollars. And really, I like Fistful a lot too. I remember at one point Matt used to say he liked For a Few Dollars More the best.

I started to type pretty much that exact sentence before I finished reading your post!

 :)  Gone, but not forgotten! It warms the heart.

And sadly, I voted in the poll before even reading the responses, and even I didn't vote for For a Few Dollars More. For a while there, it was my favorite, but after a few more viewings of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, it blew it away. I'm more of a GBU fan now.

Whoever he is, I can assure you he'd be happy to know SOMEONE is talking about him.

No, it's not him. And I don't think there's any resemblance either, except in the most superficial way.

I've been watching the trilogy again lately and my opinion has changed a little with For A Few Dollars More.  I still love it but it seems like the soundtrack is overwhelming at times.  Otherwise, the teaming of Lee Van Cleef and Eastwood was perfect.  I do love the music to this trilogy and it would be nice to see a special edition make it's way to market.  I came across an extended soundtrack of A Fistful Of Dollars on Spotify recently, a pleasant surprise.  The Good, The Bad And The Ugly remains my favorite, but only the original version.

For a Few Dollars More is my favorite.  I thought it moved quicker  then the other two which were a bit slow for me. I am not a huge fan of the Trilogy but I do like them.

For a Few Dollars More for me. It's almost a tie with GBU but still.. FAFDM was my first touch to Eastwood's work and it has remained one of my all-time favorites. I agree with Richard Earl on the opinion that in FAFDM the story runs faster, and I like the story better somehow.

And a girl will always remember her first time, right?  ;D
