Correct, stick. A name not cast-listed, but used by others to address that character. The American sailors adapted the form of address that the Chinese locals used for him. I was sort of hoping that the post would come to the attention of the member with the username JakeHolman.

The term is a movable nickname. Where a Gringo might address a fellow Gringo as "hey, Mac," he might also address an Hispanic man or boy as "hey, Chico", The one at the focus of this question had a strong support part in a very popular action Western. In the sequel six years later, (played by another actor), he is killed in the early scenes. Old friends re-assemble to avenge him and to help his family and friends.

 

It is mentioned in passing that they had never known his real name. He had been a loyal comrade-at-arms, and the name had never been that important.

"Ready? OK, when we get outside and we get to the horses, whatever happens just remember one thing... hey, wait a minute."

 

"What?"

 

"You didn't see Lefors out there, did you?"

 

"Lefors? No."

 

"Oh, good. For a moment there, I thought we were in trouble."
