Walter Brennan was 61. His role as Gran’pappy Amos in “The Real McCoys” (1957-63) was probably already a twinkle in some screenwriter’s eye.
He’s really good in “The Far Country”, though it’s hard to think of him being bad in any film. Among many great roles in Westerns, the best was probably Judge Roy Bean in “The Westerner”. (Sadly, he became a kind of caricature of himself in “The Real McCoys” — at St. Paul’s we, and I think particularly you, used to refer to him as Gran’pappy Anus.)
