    Re: [RC] Actor Who Can Ride - Sullivan

    I have that movie, it stars Gene Hackman, Candice Bergen, Jan Michael-Vincent, Ben Johnson.  It's just a little too hard for me to watch....there is a scene where the Jan MV character literally rides his horse into the ground; it collapses and dies.  Of course, Gene Hackman then chases Jan with a quite and beats the crap out of him...well, if anyone wants that movie, let me know!

    Speaking of movies, many years ago there was a movie out about the 'first' cross country endurance race.  Can't remember who starred in it but it was in the 60's or 70's.  Think the title was "Bite the Bullet"??????  Anyone help me......the final scene of the two horses racing to the finish line was great!

    I was watching the 1-hour promo for "The Two Towers"
    last night.  Viggo Mortenstern (or whatever his
    name is) who plays Aragorn rides quite well, and
    even seems to *like* riding and horses.  The cast
    was saying he'd ride on his days off to get to
    know his horse.  Deep seat, almost an old-fashioned
    "chair" position.  Very still.
    So what?
    Well, not much, really.  But he is going to be
    the star of Disney's _Hidalgo_ movie about
    Frank Hopkins, the turn-of-the-century
    endurance rider.
    It's snowing again...sigh
