Heston at his best,
This review is from: Will Penny [DVD]  (DVD)
This is Charlton Heston's best western. He does not over do the drama like he did in other films.
In Will Penny you experience the harshness and toughness of cowboy life. Cowboys are destined to roam the West going from one ranch to another to find work. If you injure yourself you're no good anymore.
The winning factor is the fact that the cast look like real cowboys and the places they go look like something from a Charles M. Russell painting.
The great cast include Joan Hackett, Lee Majors, Donald Pleasance, Bruce Dern, Ben Johnson and Slim Pickens. Will Penny ranks with Shane as one of the most realistic and well made Westerns of all time.
