In this legendary pairing of director Sam Peckinpah (The Wild Bunch, Straw Dogs) and Steve McQueen, McQueen gave an outstanding performance in the title role. It is therefore easy to see why Junior Bonner became one of Peckinpah`s most acclaimed films and his own personal favourite.
Still recovering from being thrown from a bull called Sunshine, Junior Bonner is on his way home to join his family for the annual Frontier Days Rodeo. However, when he arrives, he finds his house abandoned and his father, Ace (Robert Preston) in hospital. Determined to prove that he still has all the makings of a champion, Junior challenges Sunshine once again but this time he is determined to beat the bull so that his father`s dream of building a ranch in Australia can become a reality.
