Did You Know?


Tom Selleck was cheated out of the pilot and series on CBS. According to Tom Selleck on the Merv Griffin show : In 1979 the Movie "Concrete Cowboys" starred Tom Selleck (as Will Ewbanks ) and Jerry Reed. Later there was a spin off-TV series called "Concrete Cowboys " starring lookalike Geoffrey Scott (as Will Ewbanks) and Jerry Reed, but lasted only a short time on CBS in 1981. The producers, networks, directors never told Selleck, they just waited for him to hear it from his manager. Fortunately Magnum P.I. came later. See more »

Concrete Cowboys (Movie)
24 August 2009 | by cherylallison1See all my reviews

The movie was worth watching just to see Jerry Reed and Tom Selleck ham it up with such a great supporting cast of characters, many of whom are no longer with us. The plot was contrived, but who cares! Jerry Reed, as usual, stole the show! Now that he has passed on, Concrete Cowboys is a tribute to the fact Reed's appearance rescued the movie.

The plot includes the usual car bomb, shoot-out, cop-car chase, and bad guy fight scenes that keeps the action moving, but just to see so many great artists in their prime is worth watching the film. Also interesting is the set decor, costumes, vintage cars, and those tame nightclub dance moves.

Best of all: there was no filthy language, sleazy sex scenes, or female meat-market pandering! This is a good movie to watch with your kids and not have to censor the kind of disgusting garbage vomited out of Hollywood today. Although "Hollywood" has long been morally bankrupt, we can thank God we still have some old and timeless classics, and some B movies worth watching like this one.
