Always check your food carefully ~ for messages...


Back to a Western theme...

The paintings in the opening title sequence were done by
Olaf Wieghorst in the film he plays 'Swede Larsen'
the gunsmith.

Olaf...

James Caan plays Alan Bourdillion Traherne, AKA "Mississippi"
who at various times recites lines from the Edgar Allen Poe
poem (some stanzas are used in the opening theme song)...

Eldorado

Gaily bedight,
A gallant knight,
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long,
Singing a song,
In search of Eldorado.

But he grew old—
This knight so bold—
And o'er his heart a shadow
Fell as he found
No spot of ground
That looked like Eldorado.

And, as his strength
Failed him at length,
He met a pilgrim shadow—
"Shadow," said he,
"Where can it be—
This land of Eldorado?"

"Over the Mountains
Of the Moon,
Down the Valley of the Shadow,
Ride, boldly ride,"
The shade replied—
"If you seek for Eldorado!"

~~~ by Edgar Allan Poe, first published in April 1849.
