The best sports movie ever made.

Another film with Charles Bronson, and a chance to show off his swimming skills. 

The last time Strother worked with the great John Wayne.

I'm not sure what he is doing in this counter-culture stoner comedy, but he does it so well. Two minutes near the beginning is enough to make it essential for this project.

Jay's first "Starring" role is in this low budget horror film, written and produced by his buddy L.Q. Jones.
 Slim Pickens is featured in a post for the TCM Summer Under the Stars Bloggathon. He and Strother had two title in common, both of their roles are discussed in this post.

Strother is one of three vile brothers who violate Raquel Welch in this feminist revenge Western.

There is not much Jay in this Burt Reynolds comedy, but the two quick scenes are highlighted for you in this post.

The first of his many collaborations with Paul Newman. Strother has an interesting role in a cast full of great actors.

The iconic line from the 1960s and one of th greatest movie lines of all times. Here in this first entry on Cool Hand Luke.
