    I watched The Wild and the Innocent because Audie Murphy was in it. On the opening credits I was pleasantlly surprised to see other old favorites, including Peter Breck. Ihad known him when we were taking drama courses at the University of Houston, when he was one of the stars, acting in almost every production. I can\'t say we were close, but called each other by name. Later, as he appeared in movies and on TV, I always made a point to watch him, and he never let me down. I was very sorry to learn of his death.
