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
Bull's hat. When Bull arrives and is asked for a drink his hat is down over his eyes. When he accepts the offer in the next edit the hat is straight on his head. See more »
Your daughters are sure growin' up, Vince.
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.
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.
You're pullin' my leg, Howdy!

A realistic sense of the aging cowboy and a playful horse in a beautiful setting.
My husband and I saw this film when it was first released and all I remembered these many years later was that we had liked it, so I taped it when TCM reran it and loved it! The fellow from England who complained that it seems more like the 1880s just didn't know that in S. Texas, where we're from, and I guess AZ where the film was set, cowboying was still much the same. All of this, including the small town parade rang really true. I absolutely fell in love with the horse all over again; he should have had top billing. I wonder where there might be a bio of him...anybody know? And for the one who regrets they didn't show baby animals being killed...I thank them for that. I see movies for entertainment!
