SYNOPSIS: Here's a great, overlooked, quirky western from 1973. Hopper stars as a  not-too-swift robber who tries to go legit. He drifts from one awful job to the next in the one-horse town he settles in. At one point he works in a factory that makes Christmas decorations including snowglobes. He befriends Warren Oates who plays one of his most likable and memorable roles. In one hilarious scene the two take a bath together in a small tub to conserve the hot water. The film is filled with lots of great character actors giving oddball performances like Peter Boyle as a hippy-ish preacher and Ben Johnson as the mean sheriff. A highly recommended sleeper worth checking out. WIDESCREEN
