Trivia / Lonesome Dove

Go To

  • What Could Have Been: Larry McMurtry originally wrote Lonesome Dove in the early Seventies as a screenplay called "The Streets of Laredo" to be directed by Peter Bogdanovich and starring John Wayne as Call, Jimmy Stewart as Gus and Henry Fonda as Jake Spoon. The proposed film was abandoned after Wayne turned down the part on the advice of director John Ford. McMurtry turned the screenplay into a novel and used the original title for the sequel.
