Plot Summary

Howard Spence (Sam Shepard) has seen better days. Once a big Western movie star, he now drowns his disgust for his selfish and failed life with alcohol, drugs, and young women. If he were to die now, nobody would shed a tear over him, that's the sad truth. Until one day Howard learns that he might have a child somewhere out there. The very idea seems like a ray of hope that his life wasn't all in vain. So he sets out to find that young man or woman. He discovers an entire life that he has missed. Written by Reverse Angle

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Originally, Sam Shepard wrote the character of Sky as part Native American, but because of Wenders desire to cast Sarah Polley, that aspect of the character was set aside. Both agreed that her being Native American was not essential to the character, and Wenders had wanted to work with Polley because he'd been so impressed with her acting in past projects. See more »
Goofs Rodney A. Grant's name is misspelled as Rodney A. Grand in the first set of cast credits which listed the stars in the movie. His name is correctly spelled in the final cast list. See more »

Quotes Howard Spence: Mind if I turn the radio on?
Sutter: Yes, I do, as a matter of fact. I don't like outside influence.
Howard Spence: Outside?
Sutter: That's right. The world at large. It's a nasty place. Why allow it in? Livestalk reports, Navajo chanting, beheadings, bestiality. Nothing's changed. Black Death, the Inquisition, the Crusades, conquest of Mexico. What's changed?
Howard Spence: I was thinking...
Sutter: What?
Howard Spence: I don't know.
Sutter: Nothing's changed.
Howard Spence: Guess not.
