The cast of Ben Johnson, Sam Elliot, and Tom Selleck in a western is unbeatable.
Some have compared this movie to The Sacketts (same writer, same cast), and gave is something of a pan.
I found the story line in general, and a couple of the sub-plots, very very entertaining. I think you have to recognize that adultery has been around since the beginning of time. The treatment of of Uncle Jack (Ben Johnson) reminded me a lot of one of my uncles, and the dialog just sounded right.
While the scenery may have looked a little California, the place settings in Texas were genuine - Big Springs and Baffin Bay are real places. Baffin Bay is at the south end of Padre Island off Laguna Madre
home of the best bay fishing in Texas.
