Summary, etc.:
Academy Award?-Winner Ernest Borgnine (MARTY) gives his final performance as a retired radio DJ, Rex Page, who always dreamed of being a movie cowboy. After suffering a back injury, Rex is sent to recover at the Rancho Park nursing home, a facility held in the villainous grip of local businessman Mr. Walker (Barry Corbin of TV's THE CLOSER) and his evil henchman, Dr. Dominguez (Tony Plana of TV's UGLY BETTY). At first, Rex is helpless, but when the Latino staff realizes that Rex once met their icon, Vicente Fernandez, Rex becomes a local celebrity. Like the cowboys from his dreams, Rex receives the love and respect he deserves when he faces down the tyrannical owners of Rancho Park in a showdown that pays tribute to the Spaghetti Westerns of yore.
