Richard Farnsworth,  a wonderful character actor; and I encourage you to seek out his films to see a great actor at work!  He elevated any production he was part of.  He was also in the PBS production of "Anne of Green Gables", with the superb, Colleen Dewhurst, and Megan Follows, as Anne Shirley, which ran in the 1980s.

Colleen Dewhurst - Canadian-American actress (1926-1991)   Known most for theatre roles, and for a while as "the Queen of Off-Broadway."   Was warm hearted compassionate woman noted for opening line "hi love" She always made sure the word love was in her acting lines.  I loved her smile and her sultry voice.
