    Synopsis

    BITE THE BULLET is an epic western, turn-of-the-century tale of high

    stakes and

    harsh tests of endurance that glorifies the kind of gutsy men and women

    who

    built this country. Gene Hackman plays a former roughrider who matches

    wits

    with a lovely but shady lady-in-distress (Bergen). James Coburn is a

    drifting ex-

    cowboy who joins a grueling 700-mile race and competes against a young,

    reckless cowboy (Vincent), a haughty English sportsman (Ian Bannen,

    Academy

    Award?-nominee, The Flight of the Phoenix) and a gutsy Pony Express

    rider

    (Johnson).

    I love this film. Like I always say, Columbia is tops when it comes to releasing catalog titles on DVD.
