What's the name of the oily Santa Fe hotelkeeper in GBU? -  I love that guy.  He has some of my favorite lines in all of Sergiodom, his whole monologue is hilarious:

"Soon we'll have these Confederates out of our hair.  Look at them, the cowards.  As soon as they hear that Colonel Canby is in the area they turn tail and run.  HOORAY! HOORAY FOR DIXIE!"

That's Josep Egger, not Al Muloch.

And to General Sibley: Antonio Molino Rojo was the hotel manager.

Hands down favorite character actor, WILLIAM SMITH!

Didn't do a ton of westerns, but he always kicked ass a biker or some kind of bad guy.  http://www.williamsmith.org/          http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0810342/

(http://www.williamsmith.org/imageMPK.JPG)
William Smith Trivia:
Lifetime Achievement Award from Academy of Bodybuilding and Fitness

Guiness record-holder for reverse-curling his own body weight.

2 Time Arm Wrestling World Champion-200lb class-Petaluma, CA

Graduated UCLA Cum Laude.

Fluent in English, Russian, German, French, Serbo-Croatian.

Taught Russian Language Studies at UCLA in the late fifties

Bruce Lee personally offered Smith the co-lead in "Enter the Dragon", but another film went over schedule and John Saxon stepped into the role.

Filmed an eight-minute test pilot portraying Caine for the TV series "Kung Fu", wearing prosthetic eyepieces to make him appear chinese. The network wanted Smith for the role, but producer Jerry Thorpe ultimately deemed him too muscular and menacing.
