I recently met Reb Brown, the actor that portrayed Captain America in the 1970’s made for TV movies. We were both guests at the Buffalo Fantasy and Magic Festival. I decided to attempt a watercolor painting of him as Cap, as soon as I learned we’d both be there.
Reb is a terrific gentleman and very upbeat. I have to say that looking at his IMDb list mirrors my viewing habits as a child of the 70’s and early 80’s! He was on every major show ranging from “Kolchak: The Night Stalker” to ” Happy Days” with stops everywhere in between.
We introduced him to Tim Hortons coffee, which is a personal favorite of mine. I think it’s now his as well!
Anyway, here’s my painting of him ( I wasn’t totally sure which version of the costume to use, but went with the second movie’s duds) as Captain America, which made him very happy. He exclaimed that it was “unbelievable ” and “bitchin’!” while bear hugging me! That made me feel like a nearly invincible super soilder!
