The Electric Horseman - Preview

Preview by Jack Foley

SEXUAL chemistry crackles between double Oscar winners Robert Redford (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) and Jane Fonda (Nine to Five) in The Electric Horseman, a romantic comedy adventure directed by acclaimed director Sydney Pollack (Tootsie), which is set for a DVD release on October 17, 2016 thanks to Odyssey Video.

Sonny Steele (Robert Redford) has swapped his previous life as a rodeo champion for a corporate gig as a brand spokesman in a garish electrified cowboy suit.

Everything changes at a Las Vegas convention when, appalled that the racehorse he is riding has been doped, he gallops away into the desert to restore the horse to freedom. In hot pursuit behind him are the state police, his employers, and not least, investigative journalist Hallie Martin (Jane Fonda).

The film features a stunning score by Academy Award-winning composer Dave Grusin (The Fabulous Baker Boys), and stars country music legend Willie Nelson, of supergroup The Highwaymen, in his feature film debut.

Impressively, Robert Redford did all his own riding stunts and loved the horse so much he brought it home and kept it for the rest of its life. This autumn, gallop into the sunset with this madcap caper.
