    "Well, if she doesn't look as fresh as a daisy next to an outhouse"! "The man who loved Cat Dancing" is different from most westerns in that it is focused on relationships. This may not be surprising, in the light of the fact that the novel it is based on was written by a woman. Burt Reynolds plays a train robber whose gang is disrupted by the intrusion of a woman, the aristocratic Catherine née Cat Crocker (British actress Sarah Miles) who is fleeing an unhappy marriage. Catherine's husband hires on a tracker (Lee J. Cobb) to find his wife who he believes is kidnapped. You never get the impression that Crocker (George Hamilton) isn't a decent enough guy in his own right only that his wife doesn't love him enough to want to stay married. With Jay Grobart's gang, Catherine gets more than she's bargained for, having to fend off the lecherous likes of Bo Hopkins' Billy, and the brutish Jack Warden's Dawes and later some renegade Indians. Meanwhile Grobard himself is a driven man on the trail to retrieve his two children from a Shoshone tribe, left behind after he killed the man who raped his wife, the 'Cat Dancing' character of the film's title. We also follow Catherine's emotional changes. She is at first simply running away from a husband she does not love. She later has sex with a man who has protected her, and is then raped by a sociopath. The scenery in this movie was outstanding with excellent performances by Jack Warren and Lee J. Cobb. Worth checking out...wait a minute...just two people on my friend's list have seen this one???

    This is my first-time of Burt Reynold's western classic. A strong cast with excellent performances by Jack Warren and Lee J. Cobb, it is the only Reynolds movie I like. he scenery is outstanding and all the characters fit nicely in the roles and are believable. The plot although not unique has its moments as the dynamics of the "gang" are played out. Reynolds has never been better and clearly missed his calling as a western hero, he plays the strong silent type much better than road he went down in his career.

    Great script, but I want to know why Burt murdered Sarah Miles' personal assistant on the set. Actually, I think I know why, I want the details of their sordid, hopefully perverse, sex triangle.
