    Although I am not a huge fan of westerns, this one is quite good. Glenn Ford westerns are most always good. The touches of comedy throughout is a plus and make it very entertaining. Well above average oater.

    The Sheepman, starring Glenn Ford, is every bit as funny and delightful as James Garner's two classic cowboy comedies: Support Your Local Sheriff and Support Your Local Gunfighter. It has been many years since I've seen it, so I can't give a definitive review. Nonetheless, I think the comedy started when a cowboy (Glenn Ford) won a herd of sheep in a poker game. As a cowboy, he didn't like sheep any better than his peers did. Then he found out that the only way to get his money would be to drive them to market. Consequently, he had to find a place for his sheep to graze before he could sell them. The supporting cast featured Mickey Shaugnessy's best comedy performance. Glenn Ford made many outstanding movies, and I do not understand why The Gazebo, It Started with a Kiss, The Fastest Gun, and many others are not available on DVD.

  • The Sheepman-Western Comedy at it's Best

    It is a tragedy that this movie has not been awarded the recognition it deserves & is still not available on DVD? Glenn Ford starred in some very fine westerns and this was one of his best.We see the same westerns (possibly better known) repeated constantly on TV when there are so many others just as good if not better that one never sees. I am an avid fan of westerns & would love to see more movies like the Sheepman being aired. If not then I would like to be afforded the opportunity of buying the video.

    Best comedy western ever made! Been looking for this for years. Would pay a lot for a DVD of this movie. Glen Ford at his best.

  • The Sheepman Cometh

    Glen Ford's witty portrayal of Jason Sweet in The Sheepman keeps the interest piqued for every foot of this classic film. A young Shirley McClain and Leslie Neilsen are fine window dressing but it is Ford who carries this wonderful light comedy/action film. Mickey O'Shaughnessey and Edgar Buchannan are absolutely wonderful in their character roles. This is a must-see for any fan of Glen Ford and any fan of the comedic western.
