Glad markisddg mentioned your ending to Sidewinder. I read it quite ago but want to read it again, but I forgot where it is ?????. Please remind me.

I sure agree, markisddg about if they used Rooster's Sidewinder ending, and about The Vision :)
The alternate ending is here:

I just knew in my own mind that it was wrong to kill off a great character like Grid Maule and I needed a better way to get him out of the hole he had dug for himself.

I was wondering if Rooster Davis is still around. A former poster told me Rooster had a copy of "Ole Rex" with Billy Hughes. I saw the movie on a double-bill with the movie Spartacus in 1961. I always wanted to watch it again.
It would be nice to get "Ole Rex" to Billy's fans before it is too late. It is a slap at him as an actor to keep a treasure of his work from being viewed. Any promise not to share it made so long ago has less need than a sharing of Billy's work as an actor be shown to the world, and not be a 'lost film'. I'm sure Billy Hughes would agree.

Hi MicahFour,
I haven't talked to rooster in ages. I will forward your message to him.

I haven't heard back from rooster. I'm not sure if this is still his email addy or not. I think this one might have been his work email, but I'm not sure.

Sorry. If I do hear anything I will let you know.

CowGirl - If you do hear from Rooster Davis - please ask him to post a "Hello" on the board.

Rooster was posting here before I joined this group. Transferring files - I got a chance to read some of his posts. Very In-sightful and Intelligent! :)

If I hear from him I will ask him Deneen. Hopefully he does respond. But then you'd think he would have responded by now. :dontknow:
