    I had never made the connection to Loyd Bridges. I loved Sea Hunt also and Jeff Bridges.

    My first exposure to Jeff was "Thunderbolt and Lighfoot" and I've loved him ever since. Prayers.

    Man! I just re-watched “Hell or High Water” last night, too!

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Mr. Bridges...”TONY STARK WAS ABLE TO BUILD THIS (iconic tie flap) IN A CAVE!!! WITH A BOX OF SCRAPS!!!”

    A fav actor. He was courageous, might have done a few roles that weren't great, but more than made up for them with the hits. 70 seems young, but it was old not so long ago...

    Same here! The Last Picture Show, Bad Company, but then, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot! He seemed to come out of nowhere with his weirdness. Especially against the stone-faced backdrop of Clint Eastwood. And that ending! A buddy-picture way up there with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid!

    I liked him in The Fabulous Baker Brothers.

    Michelle and him played well together.



    Little known fact: Pfeiffer did all her own singing in the movie and she can tie a knot in the stem of a maraschino cherry using only her tongue.

    Indeed I hope he recovers. We just never know. All of it is really day to day. Hope he gets well.

    Is it me, or does it seem like a lot of actors/musicians who live in LA get cancer? EVH, Kelly Preston, Patrick Swayze, Farrah Faucet...
