Description
  • Ned Blessing: The True Story of My Life is a 1992 Western film written by William D. Wittliff and directed by Peter Werner.
  • Ned Blessing: The Story of My Life and Times is a made for TV mini-series starring Brad Johnson. The series, filmed near Austin, Texas, was shown on four consecutive Wednesdays after its initial premiere in 1993. The story is narrated by Ned, now a crusty old man who, fed up with the distortions of newspaper "scribblers" writing about the Southwest, decides to take pen to paper and tell "the true story of my life." Crossing the Great Plains in Texas with his father, young Ned is kidnapped by a brutal gang of comancheros and, fortuitously, placed in the care of a Mexican-Indian mystic named Crecencio. This wily sage teaches the boy how to survive—and how to lie and steal, so that he becomes known as the Texas boy bandit. Young Ned will later find his father, being cared for by the equally young Jilly Blue, a barroom singer partial to ditties like "Beautiful Dreamer." Time passes, and the adult Ned, played by Daniel Baldwin, is now the sheriff of Plum Creek. His father is the local music teacher. All seems peaceful again until Jilly, who had been kidnapped by her piano player, returns as an international singing star.
