Directed By: Delmar Daves
Composed By: George Duning

“A trail drive movie in the tradition of Red River and The Tall Men, but refreshingly unconcerned with grand themes…Without being too strident about it, Cowboy pulls the cowhide rug out from under genre conventions.” – Glenn Erickson, DVD Talk

“The episodic narrative, taking in an Indian attack, a Mexican fiesta, and a cattle stampede, is more romantic than realistic; but it remains consistently atmospheric and enjoyable, with the striking use of landscape characteristic of Daves.” –Time Out London

Another Western foray from the inimitable Delmer Daves, Cowboy (1958) – based on a book by the adventurous Frank Harris – tells the tale of a young Chicago hotel clerk (Jack Lemmon) who heads out on a cattle drive under the strict tutelage of a tough veteran (Glenn Ford). Featuring wonderful character turns by the likes of Brian Donlevy, Dick York, Richard Jaeckel, and Strother Martin, the film is supported by a sweeping George Duning score, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
