I feel like the guy who loses the showdown in the opening gun duel.

10 out of 10. Robert Wilke was really an underrated actor from everything like Big Tom to Wild Bill Hickock.

3/10. Just enough to get run out of town! Magnus is one of my favorite episodes. Featuring Robert Easton. Easton was a dialogue coach who specialized in dialects. Especially regional American dialects. He coached major actors. Plus he was on Superman.
This was also a radio episode.

He use to appear on THE TONIGHT SHOW with Johnny Carson occasionally. Carson really got a laygh out of Easton doing his various accents and dialects.

10/10. Guessed on the last one. I guessed that Print would not be Quint’s father. Don’t remember that one. Going to have to make sure to watch it again.
