Much to my surprise it turns out I hadn't seen this until last week. It feels quite slight compared to some of Peckinpah's more visceral works but I have a nagging feeling that I'll want to watch it again in a couple of years - it's a grower!

As close to a 'feelgood' Western as you can imagine Peckinpah making including a great bar fight scene where there are no blood, bullets or slow motion death scenes. Although there's a hint that a Rodeo star's life has it's fair share of danger, alcoholism and desperation it prefers to dwell on the wild and free 'Cowboy' aspects. Every town has another bar and another pretty cowgirl (In this case the stunning Barbara Leigh)
