Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

I can’t help wondering:  Why did nobody ever cast Lee Van Cleef in the role of Little Phil Sheridan in the movies?

And if it’s because there wasn’t a movie about Sheridan or at least with Sheridan in it, why wasn’t one written?

Lost opportunity, Hollywood.  Lost opportunity.

This thought occurred to me because I’ve started in on Sheridan’s memoirs.   From what I’ve read so far (I’m up to news of Fort Sumter reaching the Oregon coast where Sheridan was stationed), I may have to revise some of my previous views about the man.
