Len Lesser costarred with Clint Eastwood in two movies; "Kelly's Heroes" and "The Outlaw Josey Wales," which Eastwood also directed."
"I knew then he was going to be a great director, just by the words he used...he was quiet and a vegetarian, a health food nut. Being in Northern California, a crew wants steak and potatoes. I found him a health food store, "Full of Life."
After he kills Abe, there is a memorable scene in which Josey Wales says; "Well, the buzzards need to eat." Wales then spits tobacco juice on poor Abe's forehead.
Lesser recalled that;
"Funny. The scene was done with a squid, a water pistol. It was cold as hell. They did it four or five times, but I kept blinking. I finally suggested that I keep my eyes open and we got the shot."
