One of the best documentaries ever made about the sport of rodeo.
29 December 2000 | by (Fort Worth, Texas) – See all my reviews

Great concept for a documentary by covering the race for the world championship all around title between two of rodeo's greatest cowboys.

The highlight of the movie is the outstanding rodeo action which was filmed across the country. For a person wanting the inside story of rodeo, The Great American Cowboy is a great place to start
