Newman is a hard-driving, hard-drinking, woman-chasing young man whose life is a revolt against the principles of stern father Douglas. Neal is outstanding as the family housekeeper. Excellent photography. Based on the Larry McMurtry novel "Horseman, Pass By."

The movie reminds me of Texas when I was a kid. Launched Paul' career and envolved a character the he repirsed in future roles notably Cool Hand Luke. If you are interested the house in the film has been painted yellow and is 15miles south of Claude Texas(the town where the movie was filmed on Hwy 287. Many of the same storefronts seen in the movie are still there yet not in business. Newman studied his character well and though he had previous experience on horses he made the character as real as Texas in that day.
