    Robert Redford plays an ex-world champion cowboy, reduced to huckstering breakfast food in a suit studded with flashing lights. Jane Fonda is a chic, sharp member of the electronic media, a TV newswoman who'll do anything to get a good story. When Redford rides out of a Las Vegas casino into the desert astride his sponsor's living symbol, a multi-million dollar racehorse, Jane is determined to discover why. She does, one step ahead of a posse of pursuing police. But by the time they reach a remote rendezvous high in the Utah mountains, she is in love with both the cowboy and his convictions.

    It just might make you feel good at the end, it does me.
    David H. Schmitt
    Great performances from Redford, Fonda, Willie Nelson, Tim Scott and a wonderful albeit small part for Wilred Brimley.

    It says it has a wrong region code and won't play on laptop or dvd player.

    Don't buy the 2003 Universal Edition of this DVD. Instead, sift through the web and find the DVD released by Image Entertainment in 1998. Why? You'd be better off asking "what's in a song?"
    The latest version has omitted Willie Nelson's "My Heroe's Have Always Been Cowboys" in favor of some generic faux-Western instrumental. The song was played during the opening credits and when Sonny releases Rising Star into the wild. When I watched the new version (not knowing there was a new version), I was left emotionally flat by the experience, but I couldn't figure out why. Finally, I dug up an old VHS version I'd taped off of cable several years ago and realized the change.
    Call it song as metaphor, song as objective correlative...call it any theoretical term you need to. MAYBE it would not matter to a person who'd never seen the original. But I think it would (somehow). The song captures those two moments of the film -- the song makes an emotional connection. The image and the sound, the joyful melancholy, all gel perfectly.
    Why'd they change it? Who knows. The rest of Willie Nelson's songs remain on the soundtrack. I tend to think that the dimwits in charge of "product" treat these films like, uh, product. The battle of art versus commerce rages on...
    It matters. And I'm sick of the culture industry manipulating music and movies that have affected me.

    Advantage over old Image DVD: solid 16x9 anamorphic transfer.
    Disadvantage over old Image DVD: Willie Nelson song "My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys" has been removed from the opening and Rising Star's final scene. It has been replaced with a less effective, generic-sounding piece of music.
    "My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys" was in the theatrical release, in the ABC broadcast and on the Image DVD. I don't know if the omission is due to a technical screwup (like Universal's misframing of the "Back to the Future" sequels) or for rights issues (maybe AMPco had it removed), but the opening montage is much weaker without it. I hope the filmmakers are aware that this change has been made for this DVD release.

    Format: VHS Tape
    This is a movie I've pulled out many times when I've wanted to watch something light and carefree. Although it isn't one of Redford's best films (or even in his top 5...6...7...), it still has a certain something that's hard for me to pin down. I don't believe I would like it nearly as well if someone other than Redford had the starring role. Although Jane Fonda is very solid as the ambitious `pain-in-the-neck' news reporter, and Willy Nelson is surprisingly good in his supporting role (better yet, two or three of his songs run throughout the movie), it's Redford (and his boyish charm) that truly carries this film.
    If you've never seen this Redford/Pollack vehicle, there are some excellent reviews that outline the basic plot (especially the November 18th review). If you're looking for something to entertain you for a couple of hours, and aren't expecting a film classic, this one will do just fine, and maybe even surprise you. Enjoy it for the horse, for the western countryside, for the romance, or just for the plain, light-hearted fun of it. Between 1 and 10, "The Electric Horseman" gets a solid 7.

    Format: VHS Tape
    "The Electric Horseman" is Top-Drawer Redford. No one, anywhere, could have played Sonny Steele with even a tenth of the talent and showmanship and precision and exquisite timing as does Redford. Only Redford can portray a character as simultaneously offbeat, comical, confused, thoughtful, simple, complex and sad as Sonny Steele. No one but Redford's Sonny Steele could so accurately embody the honest pathos dwelling in Willie Nelson's "Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be Cowboys".

    And beneath Redford's sterling performance is even more Fun. The fun-loving, free-wheeling style of the Independent Westerner juxtaposed against the rigidly organized Selfishness and Arrogance of Corproate America's "elite" is deliciously appropo. The consistant making of the sorry newspaper bimbo (Jane Fonda) look exactly like what she was, or had become, is priceless. The swing from a simple man of real heart and real honor "just trying to get back to himself" to a clever cowboy with easily enough nerve to ride someone's million-dollar horse down the Vegas strip and disappear right under their upturned noses is a delightfiul display of "real" winning over "fake" - the "Little Guy" deftly pulling the plug on America's Corporate People-shredder - a sight most of this country can thoroughly and wildly applaud. No, it couldn't really happen - but Redford makes it absolutely Grand Fun to pretend it could. And anyway... maybe ... just maybe, it could. We can always Hope!

    I must disagree with the "Widescreen Review" of the image on this movie. They rated it a 2 out of 5. While non-anamorphic, and retaining a certain graininess, as compared to pristinely transferred movies, I have certainly seen much worse transfers of movies. Given that the correct intro music is on the Image release and not the later Universal release, I would still recommend this disk to anyone interested in this movie.
    The movie itself is a definite 4 of 5. The transfer rates about a 3.
    It is, however, a bare-bones edition. Not even a main menu. Just scene selection and the movie.
