The first movie I saw in a theater.
10 May 2005 | by lightninboySee all my reviews

I don't really remember much about this movie because I was very young at the time. It was the first movie I saw in a theater. What's more, Casey Tibbs himself was in the theater lobby meeting people, and I shook his hand! I've still got an autographed page of photos of him somewhere. Casey Tibbs, of course, was a big rodeo star in the 1950-1965 era, back before Larry Mahan and Don Gay. He was on the cover of Life magazine. I guess he's mentioned in the book "Biting the Dust." I see that Rex Allen and Henry Fonda are in the credits. Roy Houck, of course, is the famous buffalo rancher. As for the movie itself, I guess the cowboys were herding the horses along the trail, and they swam them across the Bad River, and in the end they bucked the horses in a rodeo. I don't know if the movie really makes any sense and just why it was made, but I guess rodeo and Westerns were very popular back then.
