best Kenny rogers movie ever
21 February 2011 | by elaineloveschuckSee all my reviews

This is one of the best Kenny Rogers movies I've seen him do ever!! I have looked every where for it and can't seem to get my hands on a copy of it.I wish they would come out with it on DVD like they did some of his other movies!!The movie taking place in Wyoming was a great choice for this movie as well,it showed lots of beautiful land in the scenes.Wyoming was an awesome place to film a western like this and Sheridain was a good little town to shoot scenes in too.In fact the part where the horses are running thru downtown Sheridain,Wyo. was one of my favorites back then.See I was in high school then and lived there when this was being filmed there so to have actually get to watch them make some of it makes it more interesting to me.My step dad worked at the holiday inn there as a maintenance man and thats where the stars in this movie stayed while filming it,i did get to met a few of the stars back them and as a kid then to me that was really something!!
