The Whole Shootin' Match

The Whole Shootin' Match

Directed by Eagle Pennell

The story of two wounded blue collar losers and dreamers determined to make it big through a series of get-rich-quick schemes gone awry. The film is a funny, heartfelt and ultimately devastating meditation on the myth of the West and the pursuit of the American Dream. Inspiring a generation of American independent filmmakers, Eagle Pennell's 1978 indie classic remains one of most important regional films to come out of Texas.

Eagle Pennell's 1978 indie classic, about a get-rich-quick scheme gone awry, inspired Robert Redford to start the Sundance Institute and remains one of the most important films to come out of Texas.

Cast: Sonny Carl Davis, Lou Perryman, Doris Hargrave
