About when he was just starting out in Hollywood in the late 60s as a contract player for 20th Century Fox, getting paid $85 a week and paying $85 a month for a little bachelor apartment near the studio gate. About how William Holden once took him to get a French Dip sandwich to calm his nerves after he froze up in a scene. About working with Jimmy Stewart and Slim Pickens and Ben Johnson.
At the beginning of "The Hero," Lee Hayden, the aging Hollywood Western actor played by Sam Elliott, is recording a radio spot for barbecue sauce. And he's really, really good at it.
"Lone Star barbecue sauce," he intones, in a deep, luxuriant drawl that sounds just like, well, Sam Elliott. "The perfect pardner for your chicken."
