I had the good fortune of meeting Lee Horsley in 1984 in Atlanta Georgia. He was here performing and singing in a stage play at the time. I asked Lee about the sequel and he said they were not going to do it. In his words, "It was not a fun picture to do." Maybe all that physical activity was a bit strenuous, even though he certainly had the physique to do it. Let me tell you ladies, he is one fine specimen of the maleness!

Lee Horsley went on to do several long-lasting TV series, including "Matt Houston" and "Paradise", but he is pretty much retired to his ranch these days.
