English Summary:

Comes a Horseman is a 1978 American western drama film starring Jane Fonda, James Caan, Jason Robards, and Richard Farnsworth, directed by Alan J. Pakula.

Set in the American West of the 1940s but not a typical Western, it tells the story of two ranchers (Caan and Fonda) whose small operation is threatened both by economic hardship and the expansionist dreams of a local land baron (Robards).

Farnsworth, a former stuntman, received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance. The film grossed $9.6 million at the box office.

A stuntman working on this film, Jim Sheppard, was killed while doing a scene where Robards' character is dragged to (presumably) his death. A horse dragging him veered from its course and caused Sheppard to hit his head on a fence post. The scene made it into the movie, although it is cut right before the horse passes through the gate where the fatal accident occurred.

It's the 1940s, near the end of World War II, in the American West. The setting is a large, fertile valley ideal for raising cattle. Rancher Jacob W. Ewing's (Jason Robards) family has lived in the valley for generations, and his dream is to control all of it and preserve it from those - farmers and oilmen, for example - who would use the land for other purposes. Visiting J.W. is wealthy New York oil executive Neil Atkinson, whose late father was J.W.'s good friend and financial backer; the Atkinsons helped J.W. buy out neighboring ranchers, taking advantage of their financial problems (often with some "persuasion" from J.W.'s henchmen).

 

Hungarian Summary:

Frank Athearn, a második világháborús veterán hazatér Montanába azért, hogy egy kis farmon gazdálkodva, békésen éldegéljen. Ehelyett azonban keményen meg kell küzdenie a földjéért és az életéért is. Ella Connors hozzá hasonlóen egy kis farm tulajdonosa, aki szintén nem hajlandó lemondani a földjéről, semmi áron. J. W. Ewing pedig olyan birtokos, akit egyetlen érdek vezérel: a hatalmas birtokából származó haszon. Frank és Ella hamarosan egymásra találnak a természet és a kapzsiság elleni küzdelemben. Szövetkeznek, hogy megvédjék földjüket a haszonéhes olajtermelőktől.
