    James, I see you are not listed as a cast or crew member on any of the episodes. Does this mean you were not paid? Similarly, Barney and me were in a Bruce Springsteen video called " Atlantic City" back in 1982 and we were never paid or listed in the credits.

    I was paid union scale for stunts . As an actor I was paid less as an unaccredited actor as my parts were more geared to the stunts than acting
    One of the parts I played was that of a Mexican bandit I was shot and fell from a second story window
    into an empty buckboard . Another time I was on a horse , was shot and the horse went over backward thru a saloon window
    We had to shoot that one three times before I got the effect the director wanted . I was bruised for some time after that one
    Back in the 90s I was asked to play a gunfighter in a virtual reality video game called
    "fast draw showdown" I played 3 different characters in that , I was featured on trading cards
    for that gig
    I was asked to be at a national video game convention the year that game hit the arcades
    There were thousands of people there , a lot of kids were lined up wanting cards autographed by myself and about 15 other characters on that game . A fun experience
    If I knew how to do it I would post the cards I was on , but alas

    Here's the video with Barney and me playing major role yet not getting any credit or residuals. For anonimity reasons I won't point us out but I wonder if I could get Random Roller to help me get into some of Bruce's deep pockets based upon our great work in the video.

    You have to excuse James. The latter onset dementia from too many blows to the head has him slightly confused. Here's an early picture from back in the day. he's the one on the right.

    NO HE DIDN'T GET THAT FROM ME
    As many on this forum point out on many many occasions , I have posted over 5,000 posts in a year and the fact remains
    that DeMango hasn't learned a damned thing , I feel like I have been wasting my time
    I could have published one of the books I am working on in the same amount of time and could have hired someone
    to read the books to him

    I was unfortunately out of the country during the High Chaperrel run so I know nothing about it. After viewing several episode on You tube I have great difficulty in staying awake watching an episode. It would be great if you could specify what season and episodes you were in so we can post them here to admire your stunt work like we did with your dice tossing video.

    From the fast draw showdown gaming site I used my suppercomputer facial recognition program and the first one I see is Jim Hall getting surprised while playing the craps.

    don't know about craps, but when I was a young unmarried stud around town, I once met a beautiful woman and I bragged to her I knew 147 different positions to have sex . she sheepishly smiled at me and told me she only knows one, the man on top of the woman, I yelled out, 148!

    OOOH, 69.
    No, I'm OK but your love affair with vD may be in jeopardy. He responds to ALL my posts and is always hitting on me.
    You need to give him more...

    LID, I am happy to try and help out. Right now, though, I'm busy making a withdrawal from an ATM. :D

    there was nothing like driving down to AC in the late 70s early 80s in the summer with bruce blasting on the cassette player. Not sure if I had him on 8 track in my 64 Bonneville. even before AC was a destination for us, going down the jersey shore, seaside heights, my friends bungalow in lavalette,(spelling), even point pleasant beach was so freekin great back in those days.

    What you're really remembering Liman, is how great it was to be young, we all do it. "Those were the days, my friends" we thought they'd never end. :).
