Description by OLDIES.com:
On the run from her cold-hearted husband, Catherine Crocker witnesses a daring train robbery. The robbers are forced to take her prisoner, riding deep into untamed territory pursued by a posse led by a determined Wells Fargo agent - and Catherine's husband.
A stellar cast powers this sweeping, elegiac ode to the West. Burt Reynolds plays gang leader Jay, a laconic war hero with a mysterious past. Sarah Miles is Catherine, first repelled by her captors but gradually growing to respect, then trust, then love Jay. With a stirring John Williams score, dead-on direction by Richard C. Sarafian (Man in the Wilderness), and cinematography so realistic you can taste the dust and sweat, The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing emerges as one of film's great Westerns.
Set in the American Southwest of the 1880's, "The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing" chronicles the struggle of a tough outlaw to regain his children. After he falls in love with a woman named Cat, his life is never quite the same again.
