Junior Bonner on VHS video. Starring Steve McQueen, Robert Preston, Ida Lupino. Directed by Sam Peckinpah. 1972.
From the VHS box cover:
Top rate directing by Sam Peckinpah and delightful performances from Steve McQueen, Robert Preston and Ida Lupino spark this enchanting drama about an ex-rodeo star determined to be in the spotlight one more time.
Junior Bonner, a likeable drifter and regular on the riding circuit comes home to find bulldozers clearing his family land. His father, Ace, wants to start a new ranch in Australia but is short on funds. Junior is broke, as usual, but he knows how to change that — by riding a fierce bull named Sunshine in a coming rodeo. Sunshine has already painfully thrown Junior, who’s now determined to take on the beast again, both to make a new life for his father and to prove to himself that he’s still got what it takes.
A rousing story enlivened by McQueen’s rascally charm and roguish appeal, JUNIOR BONNER will make you want to jump up and shout “Ride ’em cowboy!”

Steve McQueen As “Bullitt”
Detective Frank Bullitt has just received what sounds like a routine assignment: keep a star witness out of sight and out of danger for 48 hours, then deliver him to the courtroom on Monday A.M. But before the night is out, the witness will lie dying of shotgun wounds. And Bullitt, a no-glitter, all-guts cop, won’t rest until he nabs the gunmen… and the elusive underworld kingpin who hired them.
