An aging cowboy movie star deserts a film set and tries to reconnect with his mother, whom he hasn't seen in thirty years, only to learn that he has a child he never knew about.
At one point, Howard's mother asks if Howard (Sam Shepard) is trying to run away like Jesse James (also evidenced by a poster, Howard played Jesse in a movie within the movie). Shepard played Jesse's brother in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007).
Where is Howard? Who is Howard? We wanna know, we wanna know. Where is Howard? Who is Howard? Where did he go, where did he go? He's down in the ditches. He's down in the ground. Disappeared himself. He's no-where to be found! Where is Howard? Who ...
The blown tire on Howard's car changes sides between shots.
Theatrical version was 113 minutes, and the director's cut (on DVD) is 122 minutes.
