  1. Two Hunters, two films. Tab Hunter ended up with "The Cups Of San Sebastian" and Jeffrey Hunter ended up with "The Christmas Kid". For those of you that don't know the latter film has that title due to the simple fact that Jeffrey Hunter's character, Noel Navidad, is a gunfighter who was born on Christmas. Noel Navidad is also known in his hometown of Holiday as "The Christmas Kid" and his father was "Santa Navidad". His older brother, (I kid you not), is LITERALLY named "Feliz Navidad" or "Felix Navidad" depending on which version of the film you see. I haven't seen it and I don't know if it's available on YouTube. But I do know this. I would hate to be on The Christmas Kid's naughty list. LOL.
