    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

      Possibly my favorite movie of all time. Duvall and Jones are classics, and these are ideal roles for both. Instead of being crammed into 2 hours, this movie gives you the full story of two old west figures and all of their encounters, both good and bad. As for westerns typically being for men, I know a lot of women and men who love this movie. Buy this movie, or at very least rent it then buy it. P.S. Check out all of the well known names in this movie.

      This is a super movie, But why don't you sell the Disc that has Ranger McCall taking Ranger Gus back to Lonesome Dove to be buried. His Last request to his life time friend. P.S. you need to sell that one with the other two. Richard

      Like the movie, would have been better if selection to play parts continually was available. The 2 dvds have parts you have to select individually.

      I watched this mini series many years ago. I think it is probably Robert Duval's best character ever, Angus McCrae.
