Songwriter

Unexpectedly, at three days' notice, Rudolph was asked by producer Sydney Pollack to take the helm on this carefree comedy set in the world of Country & Western music. The result was Rudolph's fastest paced and most uninhibited film to date: a quirky, rambling tale of two star performers on the road. Incorporating songs specially written by Nelson and Kristofferson, the film indulges their male-bonding, hard-drinking, womanising life style, as well as giving Lesley Ann Warren her own shot at performing (not bad). A likeable shaggy dog of a movie, assuming the music's to your taste.
