Tom Horn ★★ 1980 (R)

The final days of one of the Old West's legends. Gunman Tom Horn, hired by Wyoming ranchers to stop cattle rustlers, goes about his job with a zeal that soon proves embarrassing to his employers. Beautifully photographed and authentic in its attention to details of the period, the film nonetheless takes liberties with the facts of Horn's life and is lacking in other aspects of production. 98m/C VHS, DVD . Steve McQueen, Linda Evans, Richard Farnsworth, Billy Green Bush, Slim Pickens; D: William Wiard; W: Thomas McGuane; C: John A. Alonzo; M: Ernest Gold.
