Pit Bulls...



Are the Dobermanns of the new millenium.
it occurred to me while watching No Country for Old Men that dobermanns used to always be used in movies and tv shows as the watch dogs, attack dogs, barking and growling through fences and at intruders. Usually at someone like Eric Roberts or Emmett Walsh.

you don't see dobermanns as much anymore.
or eric roberts.

emmett walsh has stood the test of time, though.

Is M. Emmett Walsh (or Ememmett Walsh) in "No Country for Old Men"? He was in the first two Coen Bros. films.

I think Eric Roberts is going to be in "The Dark Knight" as a Mafioso. He played a gangster in "Final Analysis" back in 1992. Yep, Atlanta's own Eric Roberts -- the next Godfather.

Dobermans were used on "Magnum, P.I." to scare away people Higgins didn't like.

i don't believe he was in NCFOM.
weren't dobermans also used in Fletch? and probably many other shows/films with similar music.
