Complete credited cast:
... Narrator (voice)


We visit a rodeo somewhere in the western United States. We watch professional riders in three events: bronco busting, bull-dogging, and bull riding. We see some of the cowboys perform in slow motion and one in reverse motion. Pete Smith, the narrator who sounds like a city boy as he explains it's pronounced "roe-DAY-o," provides a combination of information, comic commentary, and corny puns. Overriding all is the difficulty of this sport. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Daredevil stunts by bronco busters...
16 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

Cowboys who needed to make a fast buck traveled from rodeo to rodeo doing their daredevil stunts, the main requirement being to stay in the saddle as long as possible no matter how wild the ride.

Most of those shown here managed to stay astride whatever wild horse they chose, for at least a few seconds, sometimes more. Whatever, many of them must have needed plaster casts after a day's work.

The stunts include bronco busting, bull riding (unbelievable how some of these guys managed to ride these critters) and bull-dogging steers, all pretty detrimental to one's health if you ask me.

You have to wonder how hard up these guys were to want to risk life and limb the way they do--looks pretty reckless to the casual observer.

Seeing this one once was enough. Wild and woolly is an apt description.
