Kristofferson would also find success in a group as part of the Highwaymen (Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson), who released three albums (1985, 1990, 1995). After making his film debut in The Last Movie in 1971, he was also frequently seen on the big screen, appearing in such films as Cisco Pike (1972), Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (1973), Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974), A Star is Born (1976, Golden Globe for Best Actor), Semi-Tough (1977), Convoy (1978), Heaven's Gate (1980) and Where the Red Fern Grows (2003) as well as the three Blade films.
