The people who made and performed in the Cowboys are all true professionals. A classic film was made for future generations to enjoy. There have been many success nayana dasgupta stories that have come out of the cast of the cowboys. Successful acting and rodeo careers to some of the kids that got their big break from this movie. Bruce Dern who played the bad guy Asa Watts pulled out a stellar performance. This character beat up on kids, shot his own men and killed “The Duke” on screen. You could help but hate him.

KD: I’m pretty easy going so I just go with the flow, do what you have to do and get it done. I don’t like a lot of drama behind the scenes and try to avoid it… a beer afterwards always helps too!

He and I played Mortimer and Jonathan Brewster, respectively, in Arsenic and Old Lace.
JA: Any hero or villain in a major motion picture based on a Marvel comics character. I have been an avid Marvel Comics admirer since I was a child and few other stories have filled me with such joy and wonder. It would be the closest I could come to actually being a superhero.
It is obvious that making a low-budget film is really easy as long as you develop the right mindset first. Think of it as basketball, if you aim too high you overshoot the ring or even the board. If you aim too low, the ball may not even touch the rim. But when you make the shot, nobody would tell you that you aimed just right. They would just say that you hit well. In filmmaking, nobody would say you are spending too big or too small; what matters is the quality of the film.
