  • Sydney Pollack directs this wonderful star-driven romp. Robert Redford plays Norman "Sonny" Steele, a former rodeo star who winds up working in a demeaning job in Las Vegas for a massive corporation, AMPCO. Sonny learns that his employer has purchased a $12 million racehorse as part of a merger. To protect the horse from being drugged with tranquilizers and generally mistreated, he steals it, freeing both himself and the horse. This sparks the curiosity of savvy broadcast journalist Alice "Hallie" Martin (Jane Fonda), who follows after him. Soon Fonda catches up to Redford and discovers the personal and political logic behind his choice to return the horse to its native grazing land far from the clutches of corporate greed. Aware that Sonny's wishes for the horse are the same ones he has for himself, she falls for him. The film is packed with beautiful scenery in remote western settings.
