No one, in the more recent era of the Western genre has done more for westerns then Sam Elliott. Only Tom Selleck comes close. I have all of the Sam Elliott movies on VHS. I won't miss getting a single DVD. Now....If only they were releasing The Sacketts and Rough Riders on DVD too! I am wearing my tapes out!

Letters to Sir S.P.Elliott- By Oliver Clements Alger- Evoked from a desire - Slivered haired as the screen- Modeling the morality for family and films- Erotica Westerner these letter are spent- By Yoking the notes the chorus sings- Empowering the boundaries for breathing- Inward you enter-in again and again - Welcoming a lost friend- Whispering regretful words- As silences descends into effeminates- Where acting becomes the mirror- Reflection and infections of humanity. Scenes become intense with each tragedy- Screeching into my consciousness- Heroines- Discreet fully acknowledging the secrets- For Men- Kindly you speak with clarity- Reflecting the direction- Like a Rising Light- On a autumn evening- Are you Isaac’s descendant?- The word you speak- Brushing against- Orphism- Leaving the lips awakened.- Canvassing the artistic expressions- Obsessing for medical physican- Like a Psychological Kinship-

Why isn't this wonderful movie out in DVD format? We have played our VHS copy many times over the years, enjoying it as thoroughly with each successive viewing and each time finding new things to comment upon. The cast of actors beautifully dramatized for us the difficulties faced by early settlers to those high plains. Sam Elliot showed us all about the rough and ready life of cowboys at that time. However, it was the sweet love that grew between two people from such disparate backgrounds that captured our hearts.

Only a few westerns have become true favorites of mine over the last 40 years. Conagher ranks with the best of them. Why? The movie was not filmed in a movie lot specially made for movies, like Universal Studios or Old Tucson. But rather, you could say it was filmed 'on location' in a rugged, true-to-life environment that honestly represents what it was really like in the Old West. The Teal cabin and the surrounding country, the ranch of Seaborn Tay, the town - all have that authentic realism that lend excellence to the movie. Often in the film the lighting in certain scenes appears lacking as compared to other films in the genre. But actually, this is what gives the film a special feel, a special ring of realism. It's because you feel as though you are really there as a bystander, watching this drama play out right in front of you in the same way it would appear in real life. The direction of the film by Rebaldo Villalobos is superb and the performances by the actors are absolutely memorable. The musical score couldn't have been better because the selections chosen for the soundtrack apply perfectly and leave an indelible impression on the viewer. I don't know what Sam Elliot would think about this, but I believe this film is his best, most memorable performance of his career, bar-none. His rendition of Conn Conagher imprints Sam Elliot on my mind for all time - he IS Conagher. I don't think he has played characters in any of his other films that have struck me the way that Conn Conagher has in this one. But this is not to detract from the other performers in the film: Catherine Ross, Gavin O'Herlihy, Daniel Quinn, Barry Corbin, Ken Curtis, Cody Braun, Anndi McAfee, and the rest - they've all portrayed believable characters that make for a very enjoyable, memorable film that you will want to watch again and again over the years because it brings something special to the heart. Don't pass up the opportunity to see Conagher if you haven't seen it yet - you'll never regret it.

Conagher is wonderful. The great Sam Elliot, as the title character, is flawless. Elliot is one the the greatest actors of our time. As Conn Conagher, Elliot dominates the film from begining to end. Katherine Ross, Elliot's real life wife, is good as the determined widow who captures his heart. The supporting cast is equally good, especially Barry Corbin and Ken Curtis. Excellent direction, cinematoghrapy and sets make Conagher a true winner.
