Airs 1/9/00 at 8:00pm ET/PT and throughout the month on TNT. Bill Pullman plays the Virginian, a laconic Wyoming cowboy with an unwavering sense of justice. Betrayed by his best friend (John Savage), he must protect his herd from rustlers at the risk of losing the faith of his fiancée, the new schoolteacher (Diane Lane). Not accustomed to the code of the West, the she asks the Virginian (he evidently has no other name) to not face the gunman who has called him a coward for hanging two cattle thieves. But in the Old West, a man’s gotta do what he’s gotta do. Come the day of his wedding, the Virginian leaves his love to meet the crooked cattleman and his henchmen for a last showdown.
