Storyline

While the audience watches a black and white horse opera, a narrator's voice wonders what such a movie would be like today. Rex O'Herlihan, The Singing Cowboy, finds himself in color and enters a cliché-ridden town, in which the evil cattle baron (Andy Griffith) and the new Italian cowboys (who always wear raincoats no matter how hot it gets) join forces to get him and the sheep ranchers to leave the valley. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

A DELIGHTFUL HOMAGE TO THE WESTERN
17 March 2003 | by (BROOMALL, PA.) – See all my reviews

If you love the western genre, this is a must see! A delightful homage to westerns of the 1930's up to the 1960's. Unlike BLAZING SADDLES, this intelligently scripted film doesn't hit you over the head with the jokes - it kind of "eases 'em on in" at a leisurly pace, and on repeated viewings, you'll pick up more and more delights! Tom Berenger is perfect as Rex O'Herlihan the Singing Cowboy, who, along with his marvelously clever horse, Wildfire, brings peace and order to the town of Oakwood Estates. With a teriffic supporting cast, including Andy Griffith as Colonel Ticonderoga, the evil cattle baron, and Fernando Rey as the wicked railroad baron, who both seem to be having a hoot of a time in this delightful comedy. I hope it comes out on DVD 'cause I'm wearing out my VHS copy!
