The Electric Horseman
Sonny Steele used to be a rodeo star, but his next appearance is to be on a Las Vegas stage, wearing a suit covered in lights, advertising a breakfast cereal. When he finds out they are going drug the horse in case its too frisky, he rides off into the desert...
Robert Redford; nothing else matters.
Got a kick out of seeing this again. I first watched this when I was 11 years old. Robert Redford is a very underrated actor, and he's terrific in this film, as is Jane Fonda...who looks gorgeous. The late great Sydney Pollack is one of my favorite directors, and his work on THE ELECTRIC HORSEMAN is excellent.
