As we conclude our month-long salute to James Garner, Bret Maverick, 'Maverick' the TV show, and especially "Maverick" the movie, we have one last gambler to look at from that marathon poker competition.
So who was that tall dark stranger there?
Waylon Jennings was better known as a singer and his best Toobworld presence was a combination of acting and singing - as "The Balladeer", that ghost-like, unseen narrator of each episode of 'The Dukes Of Hazzard'.
And then there's the third remake of "Stagecoach", in which Waylong Jennings portrayed Hatfield, the passenger who was a gambler.....
I haven't seen this TV movie, so I don't know if it holds true to the original story. If I remember that correctly, the gambler (played by John Carradine) died during the journey. The same may have been the fate for Jennings' Hatfield.
Happy birthday, Cuz!
