    A Great Western

    Obscure western from the early 80s starring Willie Nelson and Garey Busey. Good drama; great cinematography; excellent soundtrack. Willie Nelson plays Barbarossa, an ex-Texas Ranger kept away from his Mexican wife because of a vendetta from his father-in-law who is also the pueblo's elder chieftain. Nelson soon encounters Busey roaming in the desert as an outcast from his own family feud. They soon join together as desperadoes roaming the Sonoran desert while evading men of the pueblo who seek to carry out their jefe's vendetta. The acting is excellent and all of the characters are given depth. A very touching story. Definitely worth owning.

    What do YOU think?

    I have watched this movie no less than 50 times ....... and here I am ordering the DVD, ......since I wore out two VHSs. I love the one-liners and subtle, but profound, lessons of life. I wonder how long it takes to wear out a DVD? Oh, well ....... I'll just have to order another one then. LOL
