The Real Return to Lonsome Dove.
on 1 January 2007
James Garner takes over the role of the stoic-hardbitten old Texas Ranger, Capt. Woodrow Call (played by Tommy Lee Jones in Lonesome Dove).
Capt. Call turns bounty hunter on behalf of a railroad company to track down 17 year old psychopathic killer Joey Garza (played ruthlesslly by Alexis Cruz). The supporting cast that includes, Sonia Braga, Sissy Spacek, Sam Shepard , Randy Quaid...etc., are all in top form in their character roles.
Great Story, well told and directed.
DVD Picture and Sound are excellent, picture format 4:3, extras included on this 2 disc set are text interviews with Garner and Spacek. Running Time: 4 hours,12 minutes approx.
A worthwhile purchase for the Western fan.
