The Virginian ★★½ 1999

Yet another remake (this one unremarkable but watchable) of Owen Wister's 1902 novel. Pullman (who also directed) is the cowboy of the title, who is out for a brutal brand of justice against an unscupulous rancher. But his methods upset his schoolmarm sweetie (Lane). 95m/C VHS . Bill Pullman, Diane Lane, John Savage, Dennis Weaver; D: Bill Pullman; W: Larry Gross. CABLE
