You Can Leave Your Hat On

Actor Brian Keith first appeared in a silent motion picture in 1924 at the age of three. His mother was an actress and as a baby he would often be sleeping quietly in a dresser drawer in her dressing room. After serving in the Marines during World War Two, he made acting his passion, first on Broadway and then in Hollywood. He made his mark as the imperfect man. He was rough, tough, yet vulnerable and imperfect.

He once said, “Who can win every time?” He always preferred to be the flawed hero, plugging along to survive crisis after crises, becoming the underdog that everyone wanted to come out on top. John Milius, director, producer, and the screenwriter who wrote the famous line “Do you feel lucky” in the movie “Dirty Harry,” said about him, “Brian Keith was simply one of the finest actors I ever worked with. He did everything letter-perfect. Never made a mistake. Every take he gave you was one you could use.”

In this post-Civil War adventure Brian Keith is Yellowleg. A Yankee Yellowleg Sergeant in the Civil War. His coward yellow legs ran from war instead of fighting and dying. Before he could get back home, a fellow from the South caught him and fought him and pulled out a big knife and nearly scalped the top of his head off.

Now he roams the Southwest searching for the man who nearly scalped him. He is no longer yellow. He is filled with hatred and visions of revenge. . . He fears nothing now. . . And after five years of searching he found the man who scalped him.

Unfortunately, he will need to face other dangers before his confrontation with the man who tried to scalp him. He will encounter bank robbers, Apache Indians on the warpath, and most dangerous of all . . . Maureen O’Hara, as the dance hall widow Kit Tildon. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
