Quotes

John O'Hanlan: Solid. Solid. Respectable. Republican. Business. That's what makes America, Harley.
Harley Sullivan: Our folks were Democrats, John.
John O'Hanlan: Yeah and look where it got you. A lifetime on the range and sweat in the Summer and freezin' in the Winter and sleepin' on the ground and fightin' wolves and the rattlesnakes and - oh, no, Harley. There can't be a finer calling in the whole world - than being a Republican businessman!

One of the funniest movies ever made.
16 September 2001 | by gmaloney1See all my reviews

After many years in the military, seeing few movies, I am still catching up on old flicks thanks to videos. Discovering Cheyenne SC is worth all my efforts. Cliches and all, it is a pleasure to watch the interaction of these two old "pros," Stewart and Fonda, and the superb supporting cast. I view this film often and laugh each time. I live close to the Eaves Ranch set, which I understand was built or expanded primarily for Cheyenne SC and where most of the movie was filmed. The set has changed some and the water tower was demolished a couple years ago. There is a piece of RR track and a couple livestock cars there, and the town buildings still exist, having been used for dozens of other movies since "Cheyenne SC" including "Silverado" and "Wyatt Earp." Unfortunately the owner/builder of the set Mr. J.W. Eaves just passed away on August 8 this year.(2001) A memorial service was held at his movie town.
