My main skills are talking and cooking biscuits. And getting drunk on the porch.

Movie was made on our deer lease on the Moody Ranch South of Del Rio... We had to move some of our stands/feeders so they wouldn't be in the movie sets... Where the snake episode happened was actually in Sycamore Creek right beside our camp... If the camera had panned to the right about 1 more degree, our camp would have been in view...
Where Woodrow buried Gus is also on Sycamore Creek and one of my all time favorite turkey hunting spots... Got pics of my kids when they were little sitting on the porch of Lonesome Dove main house and of them lookin' out the hotel window down at me in main street... Of course the hotel burned down in the movie, but Mr. Moody mad 'em build it back... got pics of the old burned up piano that was lying beside the rebuilt hotel facade... and a facade is all it was... Whole building wasn't nothin' but a front facade and a staircase that went up to the window on the "second floor"... second floor was about 4 feet square... just enough room to stand at the window... Whole town was that way... just facades... House had one front room and no back... that's where all the cameras were positioned... Only 2 things that were really complete was the bridge and corral pens... Was a fascinating place, but alas, bein' built right on the Rio Grande, the fine upstanding citizens of Mexico have helped themselves to just about everything they could take down and float back across the river...

Correct me if I am wrong, Return to Lonesome Dove was not part of the series. I have read Lonesome Dove, Deadman's Walk, Streets of Laredo, and Comanche Moon. All great books, movies were not bad either.

My son's middle name is Augustus, goes by Gus. Hes about to be 8. All the girls love him!

I can not believe you're just now watching this! I raised watching this movie...in fact my parents used many lines from the movie to teach me lessons..."ride with the outlaws; die with the outlaws" and "I hate rude behavior in a man; won't tolerate it".

I just re-watch it...pretty sure it only gets better.

Comanche Moon is the best of the "others", Return To Lonesome Dove isn't bad but Jon Voigt never had a prayer after TLJ...still worth a watch though.

Read ALL the books.

I got a coffee table book for my birthday full of photos the producer took during filming. The forword is by Larry McMurtry, and the intro has a lot of facts and info about the birth of the movie, and a lot of facts about the cast and filming. Lonesome Dove originaly started as a script McMurtrey wrote for a movie in which he planned to cast John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, and Henry Fonda.....but it changed quite a bit before he wrote the novel in '85.

I got a few of Larrys books on tape, for a drive through Colorado in the snow. Great author, great trip.

As far as what is next.

Larry's son is James. He is a great singer songwriter, comes to Houston around Christmas. But I am pretty sure he hates every minute here.

James's son is Curtis. Not as good as James, but a different sound.

Went to one of the anniversary shows almost two years ago in Fort Worth. It was like 4 days long and the night I went it was Robert Duvall, Rick Scrhoder, Danny Glover, Chris Cooper (July)...was suppose to be Tommy Lee but you know he wasn't going to show up. Front row in the audience was the guys who played Dish and Jasper, and Diane Lane

Cool things I learned from it was Schroder had never watched it until recently and actually took his kids to see the set on the ranch and talked about how it was all but gone. If you do a quick search on the internet this guy drove from up north to see it, knocked on Moody ranch door and they let him tour it...he took lots of pics of how it looked at that time.

Schroder also talked about how Tommy Lee wouldn't speak to him off the set but Duvall and Danny Glover did a bunch of stuff with him. Even pointed him to the direction of Mexico once night came lol. Little Newt liked to party.

Glover has never seen it!!!! Not a fan of watching stuff he worked in.

James Gardner was suppose to play Gus but was sick or schedule didn't work out (thank god)

Bunch of other stuff to like how each got their part. Duvall talked about how he copied an old rancher when he went to start riding horses to prepare for filming. He basically based how he walked and talked and moved off this one man.

Dale, a lot of that background info and the pics were done by Bill Moody (W.L.Moody IV)... He did the same thing for the re-release of "The Alamo" too. 100% of all the behind the scenes of that epic movie was shot by Bill. At the time no one even thought about filming the filming of the movies...

Lots of great memories for me personally on the ranch during the filming of Lonesome Dove... except for the fact that the dang "wets" (not sure that is PC now a days), stole my jeep from camp... Fortunately some of the movie crew was headed to town for dinner and saw them crash the front gate in my jeep... They told the sheriff about it when they got to Del Rio, and he was able to get into "hot pursuit" and catch 'em... They made it almost to Devine... Fortunately my Jeep ran out of gas before it did oil... I got it back no real worse for the trip other than a bent front bumper and busted out ignition switch... they busted it out and cranked it with a screwdriver that was under the seat...

That was all a good period of time for my family and me though...

Get the book and read it. You won't be sorry.
You will regret, at least I did.
I was on High school. I tied to read a little before bed. Ever up staying up all night. Did that two nights before I finished it. I was tired.

THIS

The other movies will disappoint as no one can replace Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Duvall in the roles of Call and Gus.

If you are looking to feed your appetite for more the books won't let you down...will actually exceed your expectations!

Lonesome Dove
Streets of Laredo
Deadman's Walk
Comanche Moon

The first page of Deadman's Walk hooks you on the first page like no other writing I've encountered!

Bobby Duvall was originally cast as Woodrow, but he wanted to be Gus.

Larry McMurtrys son James is in the movie, he's the one that goes to the whorehouse in Ogalalla with Newt and Allan, but stops on the stairs..."not me, I ain't goin in there"!

Default Life After Lonesome Dove...

Where Woodrow buried Gus is also on Sycamore Creek and one of my all time favorite turkey hunting spots... Got pics of my kids when they were little sitting on the porch of Lonesome Dove main house and of them lookin' out the hotel window down at me in main street... Of course the hotel burned down in the movie, but Mr. Moody mad 'em build it back... got pics of the old burned up piano that was lying beside the rebuilt hotel facade... and a facade is all it was... Whole building wasn't nothin' but a front facade and a staircase that went up to the window on the "second floor"... second floor was about 4 feet square... just enough room to stand at the window... Whole town was that way... just facades... House had one front room and no back... that's where all the cameras were positioned... Only 2 things that were really complete was the bridge and corral pens... Was a fascinating place, but alas, bein' built right on the Rio Grande, the fine upstanding citizens of Mexico have helped themselves to just about everything they could take down and float back across the river...


When we were on that lease, the rancher told us they took most of it down due to being a fire hazard during the drought. We have heard some funny stories from the BP about how much weed the neighbors across the river tried to store in that old adobe hut though. So many stories from that lease, we always had an awesome time out there. You ain't lyin about the turkey hunting down in the pecan orchard, alot of big gobblers have met their maker down there in the springtime. Killed my 2nd biggest axis down there too, I was sitting on the hill across sycamore creek, was a "Poke" from that hill but it was a great spot. The duck hunting was insane on the river too, it just got out of hand there for awhile with the neighbors so we quit for a few yrs.

Great pic! That's the old burned up piano to the right in that pic!! Dang shame the family sold the ranch... was 31 years for us... Got my first turkey with a bow in those pecan trees... also shot my first tilapia with my bow in the creek... was some big suckers there! We used to shoot a bunch then fillet 'em and fry 'em up... The last year, I was chasing a GIANT axis and blew the only chance at him... never got the shot off... He was the biggest one I've ever seen! Good memories indeed!

Edit: ...and yes, duck hunting was incredible on the river and that big tank we had next to town!! I got my limit twice with my bow!! Was shooting a recurve back then and had a special dozen flu-flu's with those long prong judo points...

Dad was on a that lease in late 90' or 91'. I have pictures of the Lonesome dove as well. a good friend of mine grew up on that ranch. She has some neat stories about hanging out with the crew etc...

Pure greatness. I still maintain the most underrated line in the whole series involved Dee Boot in the jailhouse. To paraphrase:

Dee: "They got me in jail for killing a boy Ellie, they're gonna kill me."

Luke: "What'd he do? Aggravate ye?"

Classic.

Just ordered a copy of "The Trail Drivers of Texas". Can't wait to read it.

Good times.

after my son got his degree he went on his first job interview. His interviewer said to him," Son what is your favorite movie?"

my son replied, " Lonesome Dove". And the reply was, : This interview is over. You are hired! lets go eat some lunch."

Also, "The Ladder of Rivers" by Harry Chrisman. If you are familiar with Lee and Williamson counties you will know some places in the book.

Makes me want to watch it right now. One of my favorite westerns that not many people talk about much at all was on the other night.
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence. The cast in that movie is a whos who of the old western movie stars.
