Separated at birth?

I'm a big fan of the covers that the Black Horse Western series and the Linford Western Library provide for their books. One of the fun games to play is spotting the film actor (it's usually Charles Bronson or Clint Eastwood). But this month's batch of Black Horse Western covers made me scratch my head.

I was sure I'd seen the main character who appears on the cover of Greg Mitchell's Crooked Foot's Gold before, but I just wasn't sure where. Then, I suddenly got it. He featured on my The Gallow's Gang.

I now can't help but see this bloke as being like one of those amusing animals that suddenly pop up in the foreground before the camera in people's holiday snaps. I wonder which picture he'll jump in front of next!
