THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN:

From left to right – Steve McQueen,Yul Brynner,Horst Buchholtz,Robert Vaughan, Charles Bronson.

Back row –James Coburn, Brad Dexter.

Of the seven actors who played The Magnificent Seven in 1960, only one is still with us – Robert Vaughan who played Lee.

Steve McQueen died in 1980,Yul Brynner in 1985, Brad Dexter and James Coburn in 2002 and Charles Bronson and Horst Buchholtz in 2003. Although not one of the seven, Eli Wallach was an integral part of the film,and Eli is still with us.

So here’s to Chris (Yul Brynner) and Vin (Steve McQueen)  and Bernardo (Charles Bronson)  and Lee (Robert Vaughan)  and Harry (Brad Dexter)  and Britt (JAmes Coburn)  and Chico (Horst Buchholtz) – and Calvera (Eli Wallach) .
