Cowboy and The Movie Star
23 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Is the Cowboy and the Movie Star available for sale? I would love to purchase this on DVD or VHS? This movie was a TV movie, and was played on AMC movie channel. I am looking to purchase this, but have yet to find this movie for sale. Is there anyway to contact someone who could make this movie available? This is a great movie, and I am sure many more people would enjoy watching this movie. If anyone out there can locate it or tell me how to purchase this I would appreciate it. Does anyone know of another web site that would have more information on this movie? Maybe we could find enough people to send in request for the movie and it would be put on DVD.
