Sam Peckinpah was a fine director of actors when the material was right, and his first collaboration with Steve McQueen is an involved character study about a rodeo family dealing with changing times. Prescott, Arizona is the backdrop for a 4th of July, and McQueen is the aging star that wants to ride the roughest bull in the bullpen. Joe Don Baker and Ben Johnson shine, but the movie belongs to Ida Lupino and Robert Preston. On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
