[Update: This is the filming of “Walker,” in a photo taken April 5, 1987. And no, we’re not on an Ed Harris theme even though we had “Swing Shift” yesterday. It just worked out that way.]

[Update: This is director Alex  Cox.]

Remember how people used to dress up on movie shoots back in the 1920s – ‘40s? That is so over!

    Darren McGavin?


  2. I believe it is Warren Oates before the firing squad in Sam Peckinpah’s 1965 film
