The Electric Horseman

1979, Movie, PG, 120 mins

Mildly funny comedy-western that owes a lot to LONELY ARE THE BRAVE in its concept of an anachronistic cowboy.

Redford is a has-been rodeo star reduced to plugging breakfast cereals; his next big appearance is in a tacky Vegas stage revue, wearing a neon suit and riding a $12 million horse. The last straw comes when he discovers his horse is being tranquilized, and he takes off into the wild in protest. Fonda plays a media-hype reporter who covers the story and ends up--predictably and sentimentally--falling for the displaced hero. The third teaming of Redford and Fonda (after THE CHASE and BAREFOOT IN THE PARK), HORSEMAN falls far short of what it might have be...
