Review
Cable Hogue has made a fortune from selling water to weary travellers, but as the great Western wilderness becomes ever more civilised Hogue himself remains deeply rooted in the harsh day to day living of his past; Counting down the weeks, months and years until the two men who left him to die wander back into his life. Cable Hogue is a gloriously whimsical Western from the master of the genre. Quirky, witty and with a near perfect central performance from Robards, this is an original and understated gem.
