Image Hosted by ImageShack.usAbout Martha Bullock:

Even as the stagecoach carries Martha and her son William to Deadwood and a reunion with her new husband, Seth Bullock is involved in a very passionate embrace with Alma Garret in her hotel room. By the time the stage actually pulls into town, Martha’s husband is in a life and death battle with Al Swearengen, who has humiliated Bullock publicly over his affair with the widow Garret. Although startled by the unexpected circumstances of her arrival, she appears to take it all in with supreme dignity.

During the early 1970s, Dourif appeared in a number of plays, off-Broadway and at Image Hosted by ImageShack.usWoodstock, New York, including The Ghost Sonata, The Doctor in Spite of Himself and ‘When You Comin’ Back, Red Rider? in which he was spotted by director Milos Forman who cast him in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
