Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Not a French western, Cowboy is actually a gritty contemporary cop drama. Aldo Maccione stars as Inspector Cesar Cappucino, known throughout Nice as "Le Cowboy" because of his gonzo round-em-up techinique. Right now, Cappucino is hot on the trail of a drug cartel in the South of France. He does what he can from headquarters, then is summoned to clean up another dope ring in Paris. The dual-plot structure of Cowboy suggests that the film was intended as two one-hour TV dramas. Featured in the cast is Renee St. Cyr, the mother of director Georges Lautner.
