The Culpepper Cattle Co., Teenager Ben Mockridge feels life in a Wild West farm town has nothing better to offer than horse-cart racing with other hicks, so he naively begs cattle company owner Frank Culpepper to engage him as the youngest cowboy for a long cattle trail to a fort. His mother barely notices. Ben doesn’t even seem to get it when he’s told to report as ‘little Mary’ to the old cook, whose words, “Cowboy is something you do only if you have nothing better.” gradually become clear. Instead of an exciting heroic macho life, it’s endless hard work, dumb chores and embarrassment, even getting literally caught with his pants down, robbed of his horse, and witnessing unpunished crimes…

They don’t make such movies anymore.

The Culpepper Cattle Co., First, let me tell you that maybe my comment will appear twice, because the first try seemed to have not made it. So, this western is purely in the seventies fashion, and much much more. This movie is more complex than it seems to be at first sight. You need to watch it several times before getting it entirely. I discovered it when I was a teenage and got if at first glance. This is a tough, rough, brutal story of a young and naive man, the perfect tenderfoot, as Jack Lemmon was in Delmer Daves’s COWBOY, who will eventually lose this innocence in a tragic fate. A deep dive into human nature, thru the hard wild life of the cowboys of the old west. A true, authentic and realistic picture of the life at this time. Characters are so moving, even those fantastic supporting characters – Luke Askew, Billy Green Bush, Bo Hopkins, Geoffrey Lewis – not cold blooded killers,, but goons who did not hesitate ti kill, as easily as to spit on the ground. Those men appear not that sympathetic all during the film, but they will learn to take the young tenderfoot under their wing, and even SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS, sacrifice their lives for him. That’s a so touching, so poignant movie, I nearly wept. This is also a tale of bad guys fighting against TRUE EVIL dudes. A pure man’s tale, but in the good way. A golden nugget gem that deserves to be kept very carefully and shown again and again to new audiences. Yes, they Don’t make this kind of films anymore. Such a shame.
