Who Are These Guys?

from an Annual Xmas quiz in the SF Chronicle

<<11) Each of these people is better known by his nickname. Name the nicknames. Wilmer David Mizell; Mordecai Peter Centennial Brown; Clement John Dreisewerd; Walter Perry Johnson; Harold Henry Reese.>>

I got 4 of 5... no fair peeking! (and DJ is banned for professionalism)

But if you wanna get into the guys chasing Butch & Sundance, what was the name of their Indian tracker?!

I'm guessing the second last one was The Fridge except that I don't think his last name was Johnson. No way do I get that tracker question without googling.

Walter "The Big Train" Johnson was one of the best pitchers in history. I think you are thinking of William "the Refrigerator" Perry

Vinegar Bend Mizell and Three-Finger Brown are the first two. I've no idea who Dreisewerd might be. I knew Johnson and Reese, so I guess I would have gotten 4 of 5 as well.

Speaking of Butch Cassidy, has there ever been an author screenwriter with a greater range than William Goldman?

Butch, as I recall, an original screenplay, and he also wrote the book and screenplays for Marathon Man and The Princess Bride. And screenplays for All The President's Men and Misery.

And talk about talent in the family: his brother wrote the screenplay for another movie that's in the gh all-time Top 10.... can anybody name it?

James Goldman, The Lion In Winter. One of my all time faves.
