Of Interest . . .

Jim was kind enough to correct us when we erroneously posted Dusty O'Dee's photo with his name on the cast index page . . . we were thrown by the fact he was credited as "The Bearded Cowboy."  As Jim was so kind to point out, he didn't actually have a beard in the movie.  Thanks Jim, you are one most outstanding dude!
