Being the one who's researching on Larry McMurtry,i cannot miss this black and white flick of his!As a research scholar i enjoyed the novel as much as the movie.One can relate to oneself the events happening in Sonny Crawford and Duane.The coming of age theme of the movie is close to reality and is well accepted by the audience.

This movie is right up there with "Casablanca", a classic that you need to see at some time. I really enjoy it, but know people who hate it and most kids seem to find it boring. It's worth it just to see Cybill Sheppard and Jeff Bridges in their first movie, and Timothy Bottoms when he actually bothered to act. The choice of black-and-white is searingly effective. Cool extra point -- the film (and the sequel, "Texasville") was shot in the actual locale (Archer City, TX) for which the book was written, so if you're north of Dallas sometime, drive-around the "set" and visit the places seen in the movie, eat curly fries at the Dairy Queen, and possibly meet the author, Larry McMurty, at his bookstores.

Maybe I'm missing something here. Maybe I expected a 'sensitive, stark documentary masterpiece' about small-town life in the early 1950's. At least that's what the other reviews say it is. Maybe that's what it could have been. Maybe that's what I wish it WOULD have been. But such is not the case. This film should rightfully have been called 'Countless Preludes to Sex'. Certainly the script writers had an easy job on this one, as the flim contains so little actual dialogue - it's quite difficult, I understand, for an actor to speak lines while having his lips pressed against those of another actor. And that's what constitutes the bulk of this film. One is lucky to get even five minutes of other footage between shots of characters dressing and undressing. Characters fondling and petting. Characters necking and cooing. Characters in the bed, on the sofa, in the back seat, in the front seat, on the pool table. It matters not where, anyplace seems to be fair game for a round of tonsil hockey. It gets old. It gets old fast. I'm just thankful I didn't plunk down ticket money for this 30 years ago, because I'd have walked out and demanded a refund. Two stars - one for the cinematography, and one for the sound track. And that's it, folks. If you want a film full of small-town angst and pettiness, don't bother with this - just get it's older, wiser brother, Peyton Place.
