Rednecks, rodeo, redskins, rotgut, & Richard
23 November 2001 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Widmark plays the drunken, former rodeo rider to perfection, & Frederick Forrest does admirably as the put upon young bull rider. I felt most of the other players were of the Grade B variety, as was this production in many ways. Not as good as "J.W. Coop".
