Glad To Know You, Sheriff

January 28th, 2009 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · 1960's, Side Notes

Most of The Way West was shot near Bend, but some of it was shot on the Mackenzie River, outside Eugene.

One morning in the woods outside Eugene…it was about seven o’clock in the morning and Bob (Mitchum) stumbles over to the set. It’s a real cold morning and he’s got an army fatigue jacket pulled up around his ears. His hair’s mess. He’s got on dark glasses and he’s not even sure where he is yet. And this guy runs up in his face yelling “Bob, I want you to meet the only lady sheriff in the state of Oregon!” And he pushes forth this fat little lady in her uniform.

And Bob takes a long pause to look at this woman, and he says “Glad to know you, Sheriff. Tell me something. Do you know anyplace around here a guy can go to get laid?” And oh God, they were shocked. The woman couldn’t believe her ears. “

from Baby I Don’t Care, a biography of Robert Mitchum, by Lee Server
