Just saw him last night playing John Brown, spot on. Mostly did westerns so you think he could shoot straight. Has a good number of sci-fi/fantasy/horror roles. He had the right look for many genres. Beckoning Chasm They weren’t aiming at the dinosaur. See, the dinosaur just managed to get back to warn them…”Behind me…huge monster…tried to stop him…” And then the much taller monster showed up. As for Royal Dano, well, I’ll be greased and fried! Chris Metzinger If you can believe, these were top-quality, Oscar-nominated effects! Lost to Mary Poppins… bgbear_rnh Hey, I just remembered, to be fair to the shooter, Nessie here grew vary rapidly when out of water so Royal could have been shooting at where he thought the monster would be when the bullet crossed that point. It is all simple physics partner. Gamera977 How is an apatosaur like Patrick Swayze? ‘I thought you’d be bigger.’ Rock Baker Well, it is more difficult to line up your shot when the thing you’re aiming at isn’t on the set with you. And to be fair, this scene moved so quickly, I doubt anyone took notice of any of the shots being errant. Flangepart Royal Dano… “Book ’em, Your Highness.” Cullen Waters As soon as a good pun comes up for Nessie, I wanna be the one to use it. Just wanted to put a loch on that right now. (Yeah, yeah, it was a reach but I’ve been struggling with coming up with one for hours and my brain was starting to hurt.) Eric Hinkle I seem to remember those guys were drunk off their backsides when they did this. SteveWD Yeah, Jim Danforth’s effects had bad luck getting beat by Disney on Oscar wins. A few years later When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth was beat by Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Rock Baker Sounds like he should’ve been working for Disney!
