Bronco Bullfrog - Sam Shepard

Bronco Bullfrog himself, played by Sam Shepard, a petty criminal idolised by the other boys, turns out to be little more than an inept and contact-less criminal who cannot sell the goods he has stolen - ‘a beefy borstal escapee’, according to Alexander Walker, ‘whose room bulges with loot from hijack jobs that he hasn’t a notion how to convert into ready cash.’
