Critic Reviews for The Sheepman
Audience Reviews for The Sheepman
Shirley MacLaine steals the show as Dell, a Jean's & Cowboy Boots wearing, Annie Oakley-esque Gunslinging woman who also is as comfortable in a frilly gown. She has her choice of her two rival leading men, Glenn Ford as Jason Sweet, the unwelcome Sheepman, & Leslie Nielsen as Col.Bedford, the towns most prominent Cattle Hearder.The Overbearing Jason Sweet sets up his herd of Sheep to graze in Cattle Country, that doesn't set well with the town, who is under the influence of Col.Bedford, & they trick him & drive him out of town on the rails, but Sweet comes back.Hired gunman are brought in, & there is a Gunfight & Dell & an Old Man are his only help, but Sweet isn't a man you can get rid of, & he gets the girl too.Fairly predictable, but entertaining.
Although I am not a huge fan of westerns, this one is quite good. Glenn Ford westerns are most always good. The touches of comedy throughout is a plus and make it very entertaining. Well above average oater.
