This week’s mystery movie has been “Badlands” (1973), written and directed by Terrence Malick, starring Martin Sheen, Sissy Spacek and Warren Oates. I generally avoid more recent films, figuring that they are too easy, but realized that 41 years isn’t all that recent anymore. I chose “Badlands” because it was based on the Charles Starkweather saga of the 1950s.  I try to vary the eras and genres to make the mystery films more challenging, although I have neglected musicals because most are so well known and westerns because I don’t have many in the archives.

This mystery guest is Charles Fitzpatrick in his only film appearance. The brain trust correctly identified everyone else.

    Egg on my face. Today is Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek, so it’s Badlands. Wednesday would be John Carter and Thursday is Warren Oates. Spacek grew up ten miles from my hometown, and my mother and her father worked on history projects together.

    I was sure I recognized the Chicken from a major role in Herzog’s Heart of Glass, but then Warren Oates suggested Monte Hellman’s “Cockfighter.”

    Once I got poultry off my mind, however, “Badlands” seemed the logical choice.
