The Magnificent Seven

One of Sarah’s all-time favourite random facts is that everyone had diarrhea on the set of the classic 1960 western The Magnificent Seven.

Recently Sarah expanded on this runny bit of info in a sprawling essay for Medium that tackled the trots, toxic masculinity and one of her all-time favourite actors, Robert Vaughn.

Eric Roberts vs. Robert Vaughn, Podcast Style

Eric Roberts and Robert Vaughn

Eric Roberts and Robert Vaughn

We here at Risky Fuel believe in the principle that you “find your people.”

So if, say, you’re the sort of person who is super-obsessed with late actor/spy Robert Vaughn, all you have to do is check in with someone who’s obsessed with actor/cartoon villain Eric Roberts to put together that the two of them had worked together on the film A Cry From Within.

Next thing you know Sarah is on episode #42 of the Eric Roberts Is The Fucking Man podcast talking to host Doug Tilley about Vaughn and Roberts.

RIP Robert Vaughn, One Of World’s Greatest Actor/Activist/Oddballs

Robert Vaughn

Robert Vaughn

Former television spy and heartthrob actor Robert Vaughn passed away on November 11 at age 83.

His death hit one particular member of the Risky Fuel household (Sarah) very hard.

In her period of mourning after the death of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and The Magnificent Seven star, she wrote an In Memoriam piece about Vaughn for The Establishment.

One of the things Sarah wrote about was Vaughn’s surprising and sometimes dangerous activism.

It seems this fictional spy was quite concerned with saving lives in the real world.
