One of my favorite movie performances as Gus Grissom in TRS.

An impressive list of roles including Escape From Alcatraz with Clint.


 Modeling is an excuse to buy books.

Yeah he was someone who really should have had a much bigger Hollywood career than he did.

Loved 'The Right Stuff', loved 'Tremors', he was great in anything. I still haven't seen 'Remo Williams' I need to remedy that lack.

RIP Mr. Ward...
