Good Elements
5 January 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Playing the title roles in The Cowboy And The Bandit are Rex Lease and Richard Alexander respectively. The film is an independent production and not a bad B western. I counted elements of The Westerner, The Sting, and Shane within the story of this film.

After Alexander saves Lease from a lynching on general principles Lease goes to work for Adabelle Driver and her son Bobby Nelson who are barely holding on to the ranch they have. A gang of outlaws runs the local town and they're making things rough for the two of them.

With the names of the classic films I've given you I think you can figure out a lot of the plot on your own without further information. The film is nicely paced and Lease sits the saddle well as a good cowboy hero. Sad this was not done at a major studio, The Cowboy And The Bandit had elements in it that could have turned it into a classic.
