Sam Elliott – America’s Favorite Cowboy

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

I have undoubtedly had a crush on Sam Elliott from the first movie I saw him in, Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid. Don’t get me wrong, he shared the screen in that film with two other beauties, Robert Redford and Paul Newman, but his presence was just as prominent.

His voice and smooth talking persona, lanky physique, thick horseshoe mustache, deep and resonant voice, burly drawl and his silky mane of hair were insanely attractive and distinctive of this actor’s characters. Sam Elliott’s work is typically synonymous with Westerns playing cowboys and ranchers. But his biker brooded persona is nothing short of sexy either.
