Banjo Hackett (1976)
No Better Than He Ought To Be. And That's Good Enough.
|A traveling horse trader and his young nephew travel the west in search of the boy's prize arabian horse, who has been stolen by a bounty hunter.|
Editor's NoteA rambling western from 1976, BANJO HACKETT is a horse trader played by legendary Dallas Cowboys' quarterback Don Meredith, a freewheelin' cowboy who roams the old wild west with his orphaned nephew, Jubal (Ike Eisenmann, STAR TREK: WRATH OF KAHN). The pair are in search of a rare Arabian horse that was stolen from the boy's mother before she died. They have some stiff competition from millionaire Tip Conaker (Dan O'Herlihy), however, as well as a devious bounty hunter named Chuck Connors, who will stop at nothing to get his hands on the missing steed. Banjo also pays the occasional visit to Mollie (Jennifer Warren, SLAP SHOT), a beautiful rancher with whom the skittish cowboy is reluctantly in love.
