Storyline

Ben and Howdy are a couple of aging cowboys who bust broncos out of Sedona for Jim Ed Love, a slick operator if ever there was one. Sisters, Meg and Agatha, have their eyes on Ben and Howdy, but the boys aren't ready to settle down yet. They spend the winter in the high country corralling more than 100 stray cattle at $7 a head for Jim Ed. Most years, they blow their winter pay in one spring night at a Sedona bar, but this year, Ben and Howdy have a plan: to take an ornery roan that Ben has been unable to break and bet their bankroll that no cowboy at the Sedona rodeo can stay on the horse. What will they do if they win - marry the sisters or head for Tahiti? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Ben Jones: Your daughters are sure growin' up, Vince.
Vince Moore: Huh! I should've had boys. Women are no help at all around here. They've been trying to fix that windmill for a month now.
Howdy Lewis: We used to have two windmills at our place back home. We had to tear one of 'em down - there wasn't enough wind to turn 'em both.
Agatha Moore: [laughing] You're pullin' my leg, Howdy!

Excellent movie
18 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fans of Glenn Ford and Henry Fonda should enjoy this movie if for no other reason than to watch those two play off of each other. Two modern day cowboys Ben and Howdy (Ford and Fonda) hire out to break a wild horse for rancher Jim Ed Lowe(Chill Wills). They have worked for Jim Ed before and have little respect for him however as usual they need the money. What happens next is pure fun (for the viewing audience) with Sue Ann Langdon and Hope Holiday providing the love interest in the film. What that horse does to those two cowboys makes the movie well worth watching. The film is loaded with acting talent including Kathleen Freeman,Denver Pyle, and Edgar Buchanan all fine supporting characters and veterans of westerns. The actual stunt riding is handled by veteran Pro rodeo rider Casey Tibbs I believe though he may be directing other riders at times. I rate it excellent.
