Andy Garcia , playing the role of an Italian , crack shot , made that extremely enjoyable.

initially the OIL & WATER mix..... with Sean Connery.= edgey

Andy is of Cuban ancestry.

Sean Connery is tops in that movie. they send one of your's to the hospital you send on of their's to the morgue that's the Chicago way. "Carry a badge/ then carry a gun"It's one of my all time favorite movies.

I've been here 5 years and never read through this thread. A shame...how very cool to be given your nickname and CUT by Sir Sean Connery.

Dont feel bad. Ive been around since 2006 and I NEVER clicked on this thread either. In fact, this time was an accident because I was clicking on the thread below it..

FN...that is just a boatload of awesome right there! Always just figured the CUT was from your Tropper days. Never knew.

I just now read this (in February 2016) and was all like "Son of a gun! The Constable was in town. Wish I'd realized that- would have tried to meet him for a meal or a cold one!"

Then I thought about it and observed that he was here in July of 2013.

Almost three years ago.

This is a thread with some serious staying power!

Frank - if you do come back to NJ, give me a heads-up. I'd like to meet you. Email is in profile.

There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

Shoot, I have looked past this thread forever, and finally decided to see why it's been stickied. Awesome pictures. I have never seen Untouchables and did not know who Elmer Keith was, but now am going to watch Untouchables and am reading about Elmer Keith. Glad I finally clicked!

The guy on the right is a local SO Deputy doing security. Didn't trust me with Connery I guess?



The horseback photo was a promo photo.

This thread is still awesome after all this time. The picture of you with SSC walking back on the road looks like it could be in the movie as well.
