This is a nice reunion for stars Crystal and Daniel Stern, with (director of "Tremors" own, Mr. Underwood). The track is from 2008, and is chock full of information, covering the films' inception, behind the scenes tales of filming in the Wild west, and plenty of fun asides regarding Jack Palance. The Palance stories are vintage exploits of a true "badass." The script is so sharp, that a lot of air is the actors simply laughing at their own jokes. The connections to previous Westerns are obvious (even Cinematographer Dean Semler shot "Dances with Wolves") It's amazing the amount of real effects were performed while making "Slickers." Even Crystal got down and dirty when wrestling with cattle and navigating "raging rapids." Sadly, Bruno Kirby had passed before this "reunion," as the trio would have been complete. Bonus: Billy Crystal points out a certain child star that many would recognize today. Solid track. 7/10
