projects ever: "You Know My Name," for which he won a Golden Boot

Elliott, as critic Leonard Maltin points out, is known for his portrayal of "laconic
loners," particularly in the Western genre. In fact, he made his movie debut on "Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid." He went on to attract critical attention as the aging
title character in "Lifeguard," with Kathleen Quinlan and Anne Archer. He also starred in
the TV miniseries "The Sacketts" and "The Shadow Riders."
