That depends on who you ask. It can be a touchy subject with some. I pretty much love his whole catalog. The older I get, the higher Jackie Brown climbs on my favorites list.

'True Romance' is Tony Scott's film.

'Jackie's Quentin Tarantino's flick.

It's Lewis Milestone's Pork Chop Hill, and there's Woody Strode. It's not quite All Quiet on the Western Front, but hey, what is...

Both James Edwards and Woody Strode had busy supporting character careers in the 1950s-60s. Strode was pals with John Ford and appears in several of his films.

For a while I don't think you could have a Korean War film without James Edwards. It was a law or something. He was featured by some of the great directors of the time, including:

  • Robert Wise
  • Samuel Fuller
  • Stanley Kubrick
  • Anthony Mann
  • John Frankenheimer

... a list that I think many actors would envy.

The Pork Chop Hill (1959) Blu-ray from Olive Films has a fine image. No review this time; just nothing to say.

I was thinking it was Sgt Rut-- um, no, wait, wrong century.

That poster's great. Yeah. Whenever I'm eating a pork chop, I think of heroism and greatness.....

Gentlemen, thanks for your guesses so far. But...

Hint: In spite of an apparent resemblance - it is not Tom Cruise.
