Overview

Clint Eastwood fans rejoice; one of the legendary actor/filmmaker's personal favorites has finally arrived on DVD courtesy of Warner Home Video. Viewable in either the original 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen (enhanced for 16 x 9 TVs) version or standard 1.33:1 full-screen pan-and-scan, and featuring a closed-captioned English Dolby Digital Surround soundtrack with optional English and French subtitles, this touchingly humorous tale of a gruff sharpshooter's romance with a well-to-do society woman will certainly delight longtime Eastwood fans. It's also the ideal pick to win over the uninitiated. Extra features are limited to an Eastwood profile/filmography.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Dan Jardine
Clint Eastwood's assured helmsmanship of this sweet and gentle comedy marks a change in direction and image for the former Dirty Harry. While Bronco Billy occasionally suffers from ingratiating lapses of tone, Eastwood's rock solid presence both before and behind the camera keeps the film from losing its focus. The aging and shabby Bronco Billy's fading success presages the impending death of the Western genre itself, which gave Eastwood his youthful employment and fame; hence, the film acts as a funhouse mirror, held up by a wry filmmaker delighting in making ironic commentary on his image and fame. Contrastingly, the film's sweetly nostalgic tone also conveys Eastwood's deep love of the Wild West and the simple values of the old-fashioned cowboy characters who fantasize about inhabiting it. Sondra Locke's shrieking debutant character provides comic and dramatic contrast to the genuinely folksy figures of the Bronco Billy show, allowing Eastwood to poke fun at the privileged, silver-spoon class who seem consistently immune to the charms of his blue collar (and occasionally red necked) efforts.

This was a tongue in cheek cliche from the original old westerns. But the morals were cleverly made believable. A difficult task in the current trends of ''modern'' media.
