Country and Westerns….
I live in Nashville Tn and work in the music business and we always laugh when someone refers to our genre as ” Country and Western” – we prefer simply “Country”. But with the lead character being skillfully portrayed by veteran Country Star, Kix Brooks and with a killer soundtrack featuring Kix, Randy Houser ( who also appears briefly in the film) and the angelic voice of singer / songwriter Leslie Satcher… I gotta say I’m rethinking Calling it Country and Westerns! Although this was a low budget film, it was really entertaining. Well cast, well directed and full of great performances- it is a really commendable effort from all involved- with extra kudos going to the lead character Duke Donovan – played by Kix Brooks.
There is a great twist in the plot and I found it thoroughly entertaining from start to finish!!
Check it out, it’s a great watch and if you like Westerns – then you’ll really love it! Here’s hoping for another installment of Duke Donovan in the future!
“Nothing ever went down the way they say it did.”
After an opening scene that sets up the mystery of Marshal Duke Donovan (Kix Brooks) and his involvement in an Old West bank robbery, the film employs a lengthy flashback to tell that story and eventually reveal the identity of some ambiguous characters. Tried and found guilty of robbery and murder, the former lawman is sentenced to life at Yuma prison instead of death by hanging, in deference to his career as a law officer up till then. When he learns that gang leader Levi Hardin (Luke Massy) plans to kill his wife, Donovan relies on the connections he made in prison to formulate an escape with fellow convict, Cyrus Parker (Ernie Hudson). When Donovan does find his wife, she’d already been badly hurt by Hardin and dies shortly after. The expected confrontation eventually occurs, and I had to laugh during the shootout between Hardin’s gang and Donovan’s bunch, which now included the deputy sheriff (Ronnie Gene Blevins) who was sent out after him following the escape from Yuma. In order to gain a handful more ammunition, Hardin shot his partner Walker! No loyalty there, right?
The picture tries to throw the viewer a curve early on when reporter Jesse Helms (Andrew W. Walker) seeks out the only surviving witness to the Donovan shootout with Hardin, and the reveal shouldn’t come as a big surprise. Suggesting that Seymour Redfield might have been deputy Tom Sullivan who was rumored to have killed Donovan and then disappeared, it’s Donovan himself who breaks the silence on his real identity. You have to hand it to the reporter for agreeing to keep that secret until Donovan does die; he’s going to lose his job over it!
