From 1958 to 1960, Rory Calhoun took up residence in “The Texan.”  Lots of cool folks dropped by.

Strother Martin!

And, in case you didn’t catch the spelling on Calhoun’s character’s name, it’s the one on the bottom.

Rory Calhoun isn’t the star of this 1988 post-apocalypse cheapy.  It’s Roddy Piper as Sam Hell.  Rory plays Looney Tunes.  As you might guess from his name, he is so crazy.

Not the biggest budget picture of Rory Calhoun’s long career (though probably not the smallest), but he does get to briefly handle a gun.

And an on-screen death.

In this film directed by George Sherman, we find Rory Calhoun playing Doc Holliday *cough*, excuse me…Bret Wade.  And Alex Nicol as Johnny Ringo *cough* what is wrong with me?!…Jimmy Rapp.

Cool finale!
