larry mcmurtry
17 December 2003 | by (denver, colorado) – See all my reviews

this movie has larry mcmurtry written all over it--as someone else has noted, three of the characters have names that later showed up in "lonesome dove", roscoe's last name is bookbinder, and larry mcmurtry is a bookseller and book fanatic, most of the film is set near the texas/mexico border, where lonesome dove is located, and dee and mace have a brotherly relationship much like call and gus (and don't forget "lonesome dove" began as a screenplay intended for james stewart and john wayne) and dee and mace talk about going to montana and starting a ranch......

larry mcmurtry doesn't get a screen credit here, but i'll betcha he had something to do with the screenplay......

anyone know for sure?
