[Update: This is the filming of “Walker,” in a photo taken April 5, 1987. And no, we’re not on an Ed Harris theme even though we had “Swing Shift” yesterday. It just worked out that way.]

Here we have a mystery firing squad… Are they firing toward inhabited tents and buildings? Oops.

[Update: This is director Alex  Cox.]

Remember how people used to dress up on movie shoots back in the 1920s - ‘40s? That is so over!

Darren McGavin?

I believe it is Warren Oates before the firing squad in Sam Peckinpah's 1965 film
"Major Dundee".

Mandingo or Drum? Maybe John Colicos?
