Bob Hoy's Movies
Directed by Clint Eastwood
Bronco Billy heads a small-time traveling Wild West Show and lives his life true to the code of a an old-time cowboy. As he travels with his loyal band of misfit performers, he offers assistance to a distrusting, spitefull heiress who has been stranded by her husband without a dime. Initially Miss Lillie becomes Bronco Billy's assistant in his sharp-shooting, knife throwing act to make the money she needs to move on, but along the way she learns to appreciate Billy's philosophy of life.
Bob appears twice in this movie - first in a wonderful barroom brawl (where he punches a mug of beer instead of the cowboy he's aiming for), and then as one of a pair of sinister cowboys who try to take advantage of Miss Lillie's solo departure from the bar.
