The Hired Hand …

1 Jul

Peter Fonda (Director and Actor) trades in his chopper (Easy Rider), but still discovers that people try to gun him down. But unlike like Easy Rider which achieved accolades and much money, The Hired Hand (also made on a ‘shoestring’ – by movie standards) was initially shunned and shelled by critics and fans alike. Years later it’s edited re-release was greeted with justified applause.

It is unique. Reflective and gorgeously shot … flowing in its own steam.  A minor Classic.

One of My Favorite Westerns.
