Robert Golden Armstrong, Jr., known as R. G. Armstrong (April 7, 1917 – July 27, 2012), was an American actor and playwright. A veteran character actor who appeared in dozens of Westerns over the course of his 40-year career, he may be best remembered for his work with director Sam Peckinpah.


Au cinéma, de 1954 à 2001, R. G. Armstrong collabore à soixante-sept films (dont plusieurs westerns, quatre d'entre eux étant réalisés par Sam Peckinpah), majoritairement américains — à l'exception notable de Mon nom est Personne, co-production européenne de 1973 —.

Il est surtout très actif à la télévision, participant à quatre-ving-dix-neuf séries et à quinze téléfilms, entre 1956 et 1999, s'illustrant notamment, là aussi, dans le genre du western.

Au théâtre, il joue à Broadway (New York) de 1955 et 1960, dans quatre pièces, la première étant La Chatte sur un toit brûlant de Tennessee Williams, représentée 694 fois en 1955-1956 (il y crée le rôle du docteur Baugh, repris par Larry Gates dans l'adaptation au cinéma de 1958).

The main character, J.J. McQuade (Norris), is a former Marine and a Texas Ranger who prefers to work alone. He lives in an old trailer in the middle of nowhere with a pet wolf. The film opens with McQuade involved in an intense battle with Mexican bandits and a gang of horse thieves from which he emerges unscathed (saving several Texas State Troopers). Shaking off the dust, McQuade returns to El Paso, Texas to attend the retirement ceremony of his fellow Ranger and close friend Dakota (Jones). After the party, his commander attempts to curb his "lone wolf" attitude by insisting he work with local Texas State Trooper Kayo Ramos (Beltran), a tough but clean-cut and polite Latino. Although divorced, McQuade is on very good terms with his ex-wife, and loves his teenage daughter Sally. McQuade also seems to like Sally's boyfriend Bobby, who is enlisted in the US Army and is respectful of McQuade being a retired Marine.
