Trivia:
James Garner's role was originally played by Tommy Lee Jones in "Lonesome Dove" (1989). Garner and Jones would later appear together in Space Cowboys (2000).See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: Judge Roy Bean is killed in this film, and John Wesley Hardin survives. The manner of Bean's death does not conform to historical fact; Bean actually drank himself to death; but his reputation as a "hanging judge" who was hanged outside his own courthouse is a popular legend. However, John Wesley Hardin died in 1895. Judge Roy Bean died eight years later in 1903.See more »
Quotes:
[flashback where Mox Mox is about to burn Lorena and a boy]
Mox Mox:This is gonna make you burn hotter. I'm gonna burn you first, so you don't have to hear that little boy holler.
[Blue Duck arrives and fires a shot in the air]
Blue Duck:What do you think you're doing?
Mox Mox:I'm gonna burn that blue-eyed whore! I don't see what business that is o' yours.
Blue Duck:She's my whore. That what business it is of mine. And you ain't burnin' her. Not today.
Mox Mox:Why not, by God?
Blue Duck:Because she's my bait, by God. The old ranger McCrae will come lookin' for her. All we gotta do is wait. Once he gets here, you can burn them both.

A truly great western, revolving around the stunning performance of James Garner, 17 October 2008
Author: Steve Skafte from Nova Scotia, Canada

First of all, the vast majority of those giving "Streets of Laredo" bad reviews have no legitimate complaints whatsoever. People whine about the dark tone, the killings, the acting, et cetera. Rather, this film has much more in common with the real old west, to a greater degree even than series like "Deadwood". Of course, many of the immature, misguided western fans seem to want happy horse-riding hippies who talk hard and rough but don't live it. How stupid to expect such from the real killers of the west.

Woodrow F. Call (James Garner) is not a nice man. And he should not be pigeonholed as one, either. Garner plays him the way he should be, and is even more impressive than Tommy Lee Jones in "Lonesome Dove", the series which preceded this one. Indeed, despite the rabid fanbase of "Lonesome Dove" (of which I very nearly belong), this series is undoubtedly superior. First of all, the direction is a vast improvement. Joseph Sargent handles the scenery and actors with far more intelligence and grace than Simon Wincer, who proved his woeful inadequacies when he returned for the prequel "Comanche Moon" last year. That series was pure trash, horribly acted and directed despite the great actors involved.

There are many great performances beside Garner. Charles Martin Smith, Sam Shepard, and Sissy Spacek are pure class. Smith, especially, has always been an excellent unnoticed actor. This is perhaps his best performance since "Never Cry Wolf" (1983). He is sympathetic and identifiable as the nervous railman. Shepard and Spacek play husband and wife quite intuitively. Their character development is well-performed to the highest degree. This is also one of Spacek's best performances.

Larry McMurtry has a very intuitive writing style, and the film carries over much of his subtlety. There's no overblown dialogue or direction to be found in "Streets of Laredo", something that the original "Lonesome Dove" series sometimes slipped into. I would say, without reservation, that this is one of the very best and most realistic depictions of the true west. A great film, with stunning acting and direction. A must see for any true film fan - narrow-minded western fans looking for a 'Hollywood' west need not apply.

RATING: 8.5 out of 10
