CATTLE ANNIE AND LITTLE BRITCHES
(1981) dir Lamont Johnson w/Lancaster, Scott Glenn, Diane Lane, Amanda Plummer, Rod Steiger, John Savage [97 min; 35mm]
This gentle send-up of the Western genre features Lane and Plummer as a pair of Oklahoma adolescents who run away from home seeking adventure. What they find instead is a down-at-the-heels gang of misfits lead by gentlemanly outlaw Bill Doolin (Lancaster). Lancaster draws on his dozens of Western roles to bring his world-weary, retirement-bound gunslinger to life.
