My childhood crush on Sam Elliott has been well-documented on this blog (with 'stache and without). So you can imagine how titillating it was for me when a reader informed me that his moment of "awakening" was when he first laid eyes on the ultimate daddy fantasy in a black Speedo in the made-for-TV movie "Murder in Texas," back in 1981. The film was never released on DVD, but I was still able to buy a bootleg copy off the Internet (oh, how did we ever live without it?). While it turned out my reader's memory was slightly off -- it was more of a typical '80s swimsuit, i.e. REALLY skimpy, rather than an actual Speedo -- these screen grabs reveal that his recollection of Sam's sex appeal in the scene was 100 percent accurate.
