    Comments about Riders Of The Purple Sage:

    I'll watch this particular production over and over: it's that good! At the same time, I'll be forced to watch it over and over to try to understand all that is said: there are no captions!

      Comments about Riders Of The Purple Sage:

      Based on the first Zane Grey novel to be commercially successful, RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE has been filmed many times both as silent and sound films.
      This TV version produced by and starring husband and wife team Ed Harris and Amy Madigan is by far the best. Grey wrote the novel while writing in Southern, Utan and this film has been photographed in color in the Moab area of Utah. The scenery is nothing short of stunning and plays a major part in the story.
      If you enjoy the movie you may want to read Grey's novel. The one big difference in the movie is that they have rightly dropped Zane Grey's use of the Mormons as the evil religious group.

          Comments about Riders Of The Purple Sage:

          In the past Zane Grey novels were done very poorly on the Big Screen. Rides of The Purple Sage is by far an outstanding Western and Zane Grey's book comes alive!!!!
