|Excellent Movie||CountryGirl40 06/20/2011 |
| I have always loved Tom Selleck playing the part of a cowboy! He just seems natural in the saddle and with that way of life. He is my all time favorite actor, right after John Wayne (The Duke).|
I just wish he could make more westerns like this one.
Love ya, Tom!!!

| mstrick says it all...one of the best westerns that I have ever see.|
|Outstanding western!||mstrick 01/28/2007 |
| This is one of my favorite westerns. I consider it to be outstanding. The uncut version is best. Usually when they show it on TV they cut out some of the best parts for time. Perhaps if someone other than Alan Rickman had played the role of Elliott Marston, the movie would be taken more seriously. |
Watch it for yourself and see if you don;t thoroughly enjoy it!
