In the 1800's, the handle on a coffin was called a huckle. Being a huckle bearer, was the same as being a pall bearer today.You know what's funny, is that after you said that I paid close attention to that statement several times. Each time he said that there could be several different interpretations by him. Next time you see that movie watch closely.
That's more than interesting. Thank you for providing that.
I like Ed Harris. I'll be sure to catch it. You ever seen "Never give an inch" with Paul Newm an? That's another good one.If you like "Tombstone", then catch "Appaloosa" with Ed Harris and Viggo Mortensen. Same gritty flavor, dialog and sense of authenticity. Viggo Mortensen as Harris's sidekick/enforcer, with a double barrel 8 gauge is wonderful.
