Quotes

[the rangers dig side-by-side graves for two of their dead comrades]
Long Bill Coleman: Josh and Zeke were pards. I don't guess they'll mind bunking together in the hereafter.
Bigfoot Wallace: If anybody knows a good scripture, let 'em say it. We got to skedaddle. I don't fancy another fight with Buffalo Hump.
Long Bill Coleman: There's that scripture about them green pastures...
Bigfoot Wallace: So say it then, Bill!
Long Bill Coleman: Well... them there's green pastures... that's all I recall.

True to the book
16 April 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The author of the book "Dead Man's Walk" also wrote the screenplay for this film, which is obvious when one sees how closely the film adheres to the book. Although I have read the book in question, it didn't curtail my enjoyment of the movie.

One notices how closely the young actors portraying Gus McRae and Woodrow Call (David Arquette and Johny Lee Miller) resemble older versions of the same characters as actualized by Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones. My guess is that making that resemblance a fact was of paramount importance to the filmmakers, as the primary audience for "Dead Man's Walk" has already seen "Lonesome Dove" and would be disappointed if Arquette's performance didn't recall Duvall's and Miller's work wasn't reminiscent of Jones'.

Although it may have been primarily a marketing decision, the strong resemblance between young and old Gus and Call works for me and, oddly enough, binds the two miniseries together.

May we now see a miniseries based on McMurtry's second prequel, "Comanche Moon"?
