Storyline

A stranger in a Western cattle-town behaves with remarkable self-assurance, establishing himself as a man to be reckoned with. The reason appears with his stock: a herd of sheep, which he intends to graze on the range. The horrified inhabitants decide to run him out at all costs. Written by David Levene <D.S.Levene@durham.ac.uk>

User Reviews

One of the best comedy/western movies I have seen.
1 September 1999 | by (Phoenix, AZ) – See all my reviews

The interface between cattle ranchers and sheep herders is played for more amusement than viciousness. This movie came out before the violence reached the degrading state, but still has lots of excitement and suspense. Families with fairly young children can see this together without fear, boredom, or embarrassment. While it may not quite meet the current PC view of women, it still shows the female lead with a lot of personality and originality, without trying to make the men look stupid.
