|Gay and Roslyn share a quiet moment.|
Gable looks the part, a once strong man whose waistline is getting soft, with sun-baked face and tired eyes. He might not admit it out loud, but he knows his best days are gone. That Roslyn is attracted to him might be a stretch--she looks thirty years younger--but she is disillusioned by a failed marriage and maybe on the verge of a breakdown. Besides her obvious beauty, she still shines with a sweat innocence. Gay likely seems a safe haven, and perhaps, a father-figure. And despite his circumstances, he's able to at least appear hopeful. Trying to explain himself to Roslyn after realising a captured mustang, he says, "It's like roping a dream now. You just gotta find another way to be alive, if there is one."
