"I'm not a bottomless pit of daughters, Mr. Roe!"

Filmed near Roswell, New Mexico, River plays the part of Talbot Roe who guards the body of his wife who has died in childbirth.

Even away from the comfort of a studio-based set, he enjoyed the seven-week shoot working with screenwriter and director, Sam Shepard. "The first time I met Sam," said River, "I felt like we were an uncle and nephew out doing their chores on the farm. Without a spoken word, I felt warm and secure and there was an instant trust. I knew it would be a pure existance."
