Wonderful for Lonesome Dove Fans!!
17 April 2004 | by (Connecticut USA) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent backgrounder that describes the inside story of the nitty gritty of the making of Lonesome Dove. It brings out a lot information that you wouldn't otherwise think of. For example, it shows the large variety and numbers of animals of all kinds involved and the amount of time and effort required to keep them in line. Remember the swimming pigs? It also has interviews with the staff both actors and the behind the scenes people that gives them a chance to tell their stories. Mostly they all just loved doing the picture- Duval says the he never expects to get a better part than Gus McCrea and that they originally offered him the part of Capt. Call which he turned down. If this kind of information interests you, you will enjoy this tape-especially if you liked the original Lonesome Dove. Otherwise forget it!
