[Far and Away]

What they needed was a country big enough for their dreams… that’s the tagline of “Far and Away”, a 1992 movie directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.

Cruise and Kidman play Irish immigrants seeking their fortune in 1890s America, eventually taking part in the 1893 Oklahoma Land Run.

To follow their dream, they decide to join the wagon trains and arrive in Oklahoma Territory just in time for the big race. Don’t miss the following Land Run scenes!

By the way, Ron Howard was born in Duncan (OK) and is of Irish descent. He is currently filming “The Da Vinci Code”, based on Dan Brown’s best-selling novel. The movie is scheduled for release in May 2006.
