Dig Doug

It's Doug-cember!

Don't ask me why, because I'm not sure I understand it myself, but I'll be dedicating the entire month of December to a very special man. Someone who has sailed the seven seas, found lost worlds, been to the earth's core and rode the lone prairies. He has battled dinosaurs, Atlantans, Nazis, fish-men, outlaws and supernatural forces. He's the handsomest cowboy to ever don a stetson, the bravest hero to ever save a damsel, the hunkiest beefcake to ever strike a pose. He is the great Doug McClure and I'll be paying tribute throughout the month by watching his, and only his, movies and TV shows. The list below is just some of the Doug stuff I plan on viewing. Any further recommendations would be much appreciated. Happy Doug-cember everybody!
