There's a line your characters tells a news man in the 1951 classic 'The Thing' "I'm not working for the world scott, I'm working for the Air Force."An amazing line delivered during a pitch perfect performance. You sir were one of the great ones.

Loved you in the movie " The Thing " and a couple of John Wayne flicks. You were a very underrated Actor, in my opinion. May GOD bless you and MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU forever!
