Alan's on-screen persona was campy, outrageous and contained verbal slapstick. Typical of his humor was a skit that found him following a pair of whiskey -drinking cowboys to a Wild West bar and requesting a frozen daiquiri. He served in the U.

In the years between the Repeal of Prohibition and the first years after World War II there were a number of advertising campaigns in the USA that emphasized camaraderie between men, and possibly carried a hidden marketing message related to homosexuality as well.

The Western genre, and the Frontier Myth on which it is built, are of great significance for American identity. The good-bad dichotomy is a well-known characteristic of the classical American Western and generally there seems to be a fairly fixed set of good features such as being on the right side of the law, sticking to social norms, showing confidence and strength, and being an honest, reticent, and modest cowboy; similarly a fairly fixed set of bad features generally includes being on the wrong side of the law, practicing villainy, being emotional and effeminate, and exuding weakness, deceit, and greed in relation to society.

The pickup was old, no heater, one windshield wiper, and bad tires; when the transmission went, there was no money to fix it.
