Somebody make it stop!...
8 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

... I thought as I waited for 6AM to come so I could record a documentary on Bette Davis that is not on DVD yet. Having a bad habit of falling asleep in the middle of a movie in the wee hours, I dared not change the channel at 4AM lest I fall asleep and wind up recording "Fox and Friends" instead of the documentary for which I had set my DVR timer.

Thus began the 100 minute or so ordeal of watching this film. It would almost be worth buying the DVD - if it existed with commentary - to see how a film with such excellent actors and acting could so misfire in the plot department. You get down to the seventh bill before you even get to Noah Beery Jr. with the players in the upper bills including the excellent Glenn Ford, David Carradine, Carolyn Jones, and John Anderson, all turning in solid performances while spouting gibberish - endless gibberish - with literally no action. Meanwhile Barbara Hershey seems to be doing a screen test for a bit part in "Billy Jack" and somehow wandered on to the wrong set.

It is supposed to be the time-honored western tale of cattlemen versus sheepherders, but everyone just stands around, talking. The hippie spirit of "Easy Rider" got injected into this one, but "Born to be Wild" just sounds silly on horseback.
