Quotes

Seaborn Tay, Cattle Rancher: I don't know you, cowboy, and you don't know me, but if you got any ideas about bucking trouble, I'm afraid you're going to have to go it alone.
Conn Conagher: You want to help me?
Seaborn Tay, Cattle Rancher: Well, I'm up into my 70s, boy. And I got a bum kicker to boot. Iwas kind of hoping to just live out my days and not die out on some sandy slope with lead in my guts. If they get me out on that range, they'll kill me for sure. And then just take my cattle as they please... with nobody to stop 'em
Conn Conagher: What if they come after you?

Conager hits the mark
12 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With Sam Elliot and Katherine Ross's smoking chemistry, this delightful adaptation of the L'Amour classic is a winner all the way.The horses, horsemanship (most of it anyway) and tack and equipment are correct for the time period, a rarity in TV movies. The range of emotion is beautifully captured in the sweeping cinematography, rich with sunsets and broad expanses of prairie. The story, one of LAmour's finest, tells of a woman facing the harsh reality that sometimes husbands never do come home...and the kindness of strangers may be the saving grace. Several songs have sprung from the imagery of this film,one of the best being Juni Fisher's "He'd Be Home By Now" on her "Sideshow Romance" album, (Red Geetar Records, 2004) Enjoy this one with a bowl of popcorn and keep a hankie ready.
