Who does Clint Walker caricatures..... LOVE IT! In his prime he could have been the best Batman/Superman ever! He looked like the living embodiment of both Bruce Wayne AND Clark Kent..take your pick!
I've always felt that Clint walker would have been an excellent Superman. as he had the look to carry it off as well as the slow easygoing country boy appeal of someone who could have come from Smallville. And the hustle and bustle aggressive if you want to succeed city folk took his laid back easy demeanor as timidity.
Always wondered if Clint was used as the basis for Jimmy Dean's song "Big John", because at 6' 6" with broad shoulders and quite a narrow waist he certainly fit the bill and I imagine he must have weighed between 245 and 255.
I love the quote on Clint by American film critic Howard Thompson - "the biggest, finest-looking Western hero ever to sag a horse, with a pair of shoulders rivalling King Kong's". At 6 feet 6 inches tall he made Lucille Ball (5 feet 7 inches) look tiny when he appeared on her show. All in all a big star known the world over as Cheyenne Body.
Picture is up to your usual high standard Dave.
Cheers! Great quote and it describes him well - he was a giant... I remember seeing him in photo next to Muhammad Ali who was 6 feet 3 inches and heavy weight champion of the world and he was still over shadowed by Mr Walker.
