Bizarre as it sounds, this movie is noirishly dark and surreal as we witness Roy hogtied and dragged behind a horse (you can tell in the long shots it’s a dummy). Later, he’s beaten, bloodied and whipped by four of the old lady’s henchmen. Roy’s famous and trusted palomino, Trigger, arrives in the nick of time to save Roy a couple of times, as well as soothing one of the vicious dogs that was wounded during an earlier chase.

Had the unique opportunity of reading two short plays and a monologue by Red Shuttleworth, a Wrangler Award winner and three-time Spur Award winner for his poetry. The plays and monologue I read are part of his “Americana West,” a series of 100 short theater pieces, set in the West from 1900 to 1999.
