Hicks, and Jim Watson (Touch the picture

An upstaging problem!
Jim Wann (Jesse James) may have found
the only way to upstage Tommy Thompson, who looks fetching here (except
for a minor facial hair problem) in costume as Jesse James' mother.
Tommy also played the role of Jesse's cousin Cole Younger. Clive
Barnes wrote about Tommy this way: "a huge man with a red beard and a fine
Hicks as Bocephus!
Bill Hicks shares this scene with Rick
Simpson who left the show and was replaced by Jack Herrick who became the
fifth Red Clay Rambler
