Lonesome Dove 20th Anniversary AMC special

Twenty years ago CBS broadcasted the mini-series "Lonsome Dove" starring, Tommy Lee Jones, Robert Duvall, Jones, Danny Glover, Anjelica Huston and Diane Lane. Lonesome Dove was nominated in 1996 for the Best Original Music Score for a Dramatic Series and won the Best Photography in a Dramatic Program or Series.

Saturday and Sunday, AMC is going to broadcast a restored widescreen version of the eight-hour miniseries starring Tommy Lee Jones, Robert Duvall, Jones, Danny Glover, Anjelica Huston and Diane Lane. It will air from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (or watch it from start to finish from 3 to 11 p.m. Sunday).

This is an excellent movie, heart wrenching. I watched it some time ago and do not plan on missing this special. What the entire series about was put into words perfectly by Penny TV:

“There were things that were physically demanding. There were things that were emotionally demanding. There were things that were logistically demanding,” Jones says. “I loved every minute of it. I look for a good script, good company and a beautiful place to work. ‘Lonesome Dove’ certainly fulfilled all of that many times over.”
