Trivia

Lane Frost was originally going to perform the stunts for the main character (H.D. Dalton), and his wife Kellie Kyle-Frost (now Macy) was working as Stunt Coordinator for the film at the time of Lane's death at the 1989 Frontier Days in Cheyenne, Wyoming. After Lane's death, his good friend Tuff Hedeman performed the stunt work. See more »

Goofs

When HD is shaving in the mirror and his Dad is watching, he cuts himself several times, the first one in the middle of his left cheek. Afterward he is shown with bits of toilet paper stuck to the cuts, but the one on the left cheek is almost under his ear instead of where he actually cut it. See more »

All hat and no cattle
21 April 2007 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

I cannot count the number of movies that I have seen with Scott Glen. But not one of them, with maybe the exception of the role of Alan Shepard in The Right Stuff has stuck with me. I saw him the other night in what I though was an outstanding performance, so I thought I would take another look. I was not disappointed.

Playing a role that many of us have been in, a man with a difficult relationship with his father, Glen (H.D.) really showed the right stuff in this film. he left his father, his high school sweetheart, and all responsibility to do his thing. Now, he is back trying to see if he truly is all hat and no cattle as his girlfriend Jolie (Kate Capshaw) accuses him of being. Complicating the problem is a sister (Tess Harper) that was left with all the responsibility when he left. H.D. has to get it all together to save his father and his relationship with Jolie.

Scott Glen has the right stuff and I will be revisiting a lot of films that I've seen.
