Overview

This six-hour miniseries, based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Larry McMurtry, revitalized both the miniseries and Western genres, both of which had been considered dead for several years. Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones star as fun-loving Gus MacRae and taciturn Woodrow Call, respectively, a pair of longtime friends and former Texas Rangers who crave one last adventure before they bow to their advancing years. Convinced that animals will thrive on the lush grasslands of Montana, Woodrow persuades Gus to undertake the arduous, 3,000-mile cattle drive there. Rounding up over a thousand head from Mexican rustlers south of the border, the men recruit a diverse crew of hands to help them. Among the party are Woodrow's illegitimate son Newt Dobbs (Rick Schroeder), local prostitute Lorena Wood (Diane Lane), and old compatriots Joshua Deets (Danny Glover), Jake Spoon (Robert Urich), and Pea Eye Parker (Tim Scott). Storms, hostile natives, poisonous snakes, and rustlers take their toll on the company before Montana is reached in an adventure that is equal parts Greek tragedy and classic, John Ford-style oater. Originally developed in the 1970s as a script by McMurtry for director Peter Bogdanovich and stars Henry Fonda, John Wayne, and James Stewart, Lonesome Dove earned 18 Emmy nominations and inspired a pair of miniseries sequel as well as two attempts at an ongoing television series.

    An absolute must for western movie lovers

    If you have seen this before, or even if you somehow have missed it, you will definitely want this DVD. Easily comparable to the great westerns of John Ford. Holds your attention and emotions from beginning to end.

    Because I own every book ever written by McMurtry, I had three of his put on my Nook so that I can read them at the dentist or doctor's office, or any place where I have to wait (i.e., getting a flu shot at the grocery store). So, altho I own all of his book, I now have "Lonesome Dove," "Streets of Laredo," and "Comanche Moon" in a convenient spot and can enjoy over and over. I will have to get some of his older books like "Leaving Cheyenne" and "Horseman, Pass By" later on.

    Lonesome Dove is one of the best of the new Westerns that have been made
    recently. It does not follow the old tired plots of cowboys vs Indians
    or sodbusters . The characters are believable and fresh but still within
    the period. The movie remains as enjoyable when viewed the tenth time as
    it was when viewed the first. I was thoroughly pleased with the movie,
    acting and direction. It is a delight and any serious buff of the genre
    should catch this series.
