An authentic rodeo movie
20 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My vote is somewhat biased as my Father was in this movie. But, this picture was a fairly accurate depiction of rodeo life in the late 40's early 50's. All of the riding was real and done by my Father and Casey Tibbs including the crazy scene with two bulls in the arena at the same time, anyone with a fair idea of rodeos would realize the craziness of that stunt! The storyline is a familiar one, new guy on the scene looks to old pro for guidance, gets rich and famous, becomes arrogant and then learns his lesson.

The difference between this movie and some of the more modern rodeo movies is the reality factor. The characters are not made out to be "larger than life" Bronco Busters showed what it was like to live the rodeo lifestyle in that era. Cowboys were down to earth, honest and solid people. They were on the road almost all of time going from one rodeo to the next, living out of trailers (sometimes horse trailers) motel rooms etc.. I know this for a fact, I was there.
