Synopsis

Lonesome Dove
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. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

Lonesome Dove: The Making of an Epic
This documentary is about the making of the immensely popular television series Lonesome Dove. The Western epic, adapted from Larry McMurtry's novel, starred Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones as two aging cowboys and former Texas rangers, who organize a cattle drive from Texas to Montana. The stellar cast created an engaging drama set against the magnificent country in the American Southwest. This video takes the viewer behind the scenes, where the stars talk about how they created their characters. Wranglers tell stories of working with the hundreds of horses on the set. There is exciting footage of stuntmen performing dangerous acts, as they added dramatic action to the story. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
