Worthwhile

My son was 5 when LD premiered; he loved it, cried over Deets, and still loves it. My daughter was 9 when she first saw it two years ago; she loves it and cries every time over Gus's death. I had not seen LD until I rented it for her and, thanks to her, I now have a "We Don't Rent Pigs" bumper sticker on my car --the ONLY bumper sticker I have ever had.

Lonesome Dove is one of very few movies that I bothered to purchase. The casting is terrific, the story (first written as a screenplay but repeatedly turned down) stands up to repeated viewings, and the behind-the-scenes DVD is plain fun for LD fans.

We live about 10 miles from Robert Urich's hometown (Toronto, Ohio) and, oddly, not all that much "fuss" was made over this film.

Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones... wonderful! Possibly, my daughter is one of the only Robert Duvall fans under 50 who has seen ALL of his movies.
