The ds106 99: #59 “Who the hell is THEY?!”

The Wild Bunch" Who the hell is THEY?!

This is a classic scene from [[The Wild Bunch]], and while [[Edmund O’Brien]] isn’t all that pretty in this film, he is awesome as the “old goat” tag along who epitomizes the hard life of a bandit past his prime. What’s more, he may have the most memorable line of the whole film—and there are many, many great ones so this is no small praise. I figured I would catch him with his last “THEY?!” —not a pretty animated GIF, but a meaningful one to any fan of The Wild Bunch—I mean the crazy teeth and stained beard alone keep me coming back. One day I hope to be an old, grizzled has-been edtech in the spirit of Edmund O’Brien as old man Sykes. If you haven’t heard his monologue on “THEY,” take a minute and educate yourself why don’t you.

They? Who the hell is THEY?!
