Saturday morning man movie

In Five Card Stud (1968), Van Morgan (played by Dean Martin) confronts the mysterious Reverend Rudd (played by Robert Mitchum). It seems that people who'd played in a particular card game have been dying lately, and Morgan just figured out who the killer is.

And yes, that's character actor Denver Pyle with the beard in the end.

Moral of the story: Beware of preachers who hold their bibles upside down.


  1. Bob Mitchum was a lot like Gene Hackman, Walter Brennan and Humphrey Bogart. Even if the script sucked, they were good.

  2. Having a fake preacher, or maybe a real one, draw on you from a fake Bible: Ain't that a kick in the head?

    Well, at least Morgan (Dino) was able to dispatch the bad dude to the Gold-, er, GraveDiggers.
