The Man who Shook the Hand of Vicente Fernandez

Ernest Borgnine in 'The Man who Shook the Hand of Vicente Fernandez'

Retired radio DJ, Rex Page (Ernest Borgnine), always dreamed of being a Western movie cowboy -- After suffering a back injury, Rex finds himself recovering at Rancho Park nursing home, a facility held in the villainous grip of local businessman Mr. Walker (Barry Corbin) and his evil henchman, Dr. Dominguez (Tony Plana).

At first, Rex is helpless in this lawless world, but when the Latino staff realizes that Rex once met their icon, Vicente Fernandez, Rex becomes a local celebrity. And like the cowboys from his dreams, Rex discovers the love and respect of his family and the staff when he faces down the tyrannical owners of Rancho Park this homage to the Spaghetti Westerns of yore. Starring Academy Award Winner Ernest Borgnine in a magical and sadly, final performance.
