Movie Info

Tom Selleck plays the drifter Rafe Covington in this respectful adaptation of the Louis L'Amour novel Crossfire Trail, presented by Turner Network Television. A romantic Western, Crossfire Trail follows Rafe as he struggles to honor his vow to a dying friend to protect his wife and daughter and their Wyoming homestead. Virginia Madsen plays the widow who questions Rafe's intentions and unwittingly sides with the bad guys headed by land owner Bruce Barkow (Mark Harmon). The producers went to great lengths to find historic buildings and props to lend an authentic air to the production. The film was directed by Simon Wincer, who also paired with Selleck on 1990's Quigley Down Under. The film also stars Wilford Brimley, Brad Johnson, Patrick Kilpartrick, and Barry Corbin. ~ Jessica Frost, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Crossfire Trail


Where have all the westerns gone the movies about our past. About all the wonderful men and women who stood by their side tame this wild land. I love westerns and I loved this one as well, even Mark makes a great bad guy.

Janeal Mulaney

Tom Selleck, as Rafe Covington, always knows how to make a good western. With Mark Harmon, as Bruce Barkow, best known from his TV show NCIS, plays a very good bad cowboy.


Good Western but it seems to take a little while to get going. But there is some great cinematography and dialog.
