What can I say about "Bronco Billy" expect that its truly one of Clint Eastwood's most sympathetic projects ever and a beautiful picture full of laughs and positive feelings. Between more violent movies Clint made a habit of appearing in a nice and jovial motion pictures ("Thunderbolt and Lightfoot", "Every which way but loose", "Any which way you can", "Honkytonk man", "Pink Cadillac") and it can't get much nicer than "Bronco Billy". Lovable story practically charms everybody and Clint is making incredibly amusing parody of his western characters. "Bronco Billy" is also one of the six films where Sondra Locke co-starred with Clint and this is certainly her finest performances beside him. Eastwood has always mentioned "Bronco Billy" as one of the personal favorites of his career and I see no reason to wonder why. This film just simply makes you feel good.
