Margot Kidder, Back in the Saddle

Many moons ago, Canadian-born actress Margot Kidder made her TV series debut as James Garner's barmaid girlfriend on the short-lived 1971-1972 NBC-TV Western series Nichols and later trotted alongside Christopher Walken in the 1978 oater Shoot the Sun Down. All these years later, she is back to the now-much-less-frequently-tapped genre for a supporting role on location in Provo, UT in the $200,000 independent production For Robbing the Dead

The rest of the supporting cast is no less eclectic, encompassing everyone's favorite Soup Nazi (Larry Thomas), Ron Howard's dad Rance, Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite (Jon Gries) and busy character actor Barry Corbin. Slated for release in 2011, the fact-inspired tale of an 1860s sheriff (John Freeman) and grave robber (David Stevens) is being produced by Firstlight Independent, with low-cost mentored assistance from students from the Theater and Media Arts Department at nearby Brigham Young University.
