I'll have to watch this.  Sounds like it was a good movie.

i watched a funny movie i had never seen before.  well, it is not a
comedy, but if you watch it, you will see what i am talking about. it
was made in 1975, is titled "bite the bullet", and is available on
vhs.   it features candace bergen, gene hackman, and james coburn. 
it is based on the great endurance race of 1908.  it contains many
elements of the actual race, and there are some accurate depictions
of things that occur during modern day endurance riding, tailing, vet
checks, etc.  watch it just for fun.  i borrowed it from a friend of
mine.  he kept telling me about those horses in the movie being all
"lathered up".  it looks like they used shaving cream to get that
effect!  its a hoot!      ed
