Painter James Bonsall appears in this film
15 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An interesting tidbit about this film is the appearance of New Orleans painter, James Belton Bonsall as a deputy. Bonsall was living in California at the time and had some minor connections to the movie industry. He appears in this film (and in some of the advertising posters) smashing slot machines with a sledge hammer. Inasmuch as the adverts for this film are more accessible than copies of the film itself, Bonsall's minor role becomes effectively more significant. Bonsall died in 1999 without children, leaving his artwork as his primary legacy. It is not known whether he appeared in any other films, though he did a bit of stage acting, and was cast in a New Orleans production of "The Grass Harp" by Capote.
