Feel-good TV movie
29 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

I saw this so long ago, when it was first on TV, and I have never forgotten that I really did enjoy it, and that it starred James Brolin (who I knew from the big-screen movie, "Westworld").

It is not a shoot 'em up western. It's not a cowboy movie, despite the title.

It is set in a contemporary rural America. I forgot the plot, but ReelzChannel.com says it is about ex ghetto teacher Brolin hiring rodeo guy Danson to fix up the ranch he has moved to; and the conflict with the locals.

Mainly, I remember this for Brolin's character and performance having a quiet, contemplative vibe, his being a guy who wants peace, is slow to anger, and harbors no ill will. A man of stillness and deep integrity.

And cinematography with beautiful country images. Fir trees. Barn. Boulder overlooking mountain vistas. And the overall presentation evoking a love of the country life out west.

If it makes its way back to the land of broadcast or video, it is worth catching.

The last episode of Season 1 of "Cheers" aired 31 March 1983, exactly one month prior to this TV movie.
