    Christine McVie's death on November 30th 2022 at the age of 79 came as a bit of a shock to most. The talented songwriter, pianist, a member of one of THE greatest bands of all time, and forgive me if I'm wrong, but a former breeder of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, McVie passed away leaving quite a legacy.

    As I mentioned earlier in my Comanche review, low budget Westerns were prone to use White actors to portray Indians to sell tickets off their name. We saw the likes of Rock Hudson, Victor Mature, Burt Lancaster, Jeff Chandler, and even Elvis play Apaches and Comanches for Hollywood studios. I've encountered another two in the last couple of days, well sort of, with George Montgomery playing Pale Arrow in Pawnee, as a Chief's son raised by the tribe, and here…
