Worth seeing because it's the only time Peter Fonda teams with his famous father Henry.

Audience Reviews for Wanda Nevada

Interesting to watch to see Brooke Shields acting as a 14 yr old and Peter Fonda in a scene with his famous dad. The story is a little far-fetched with an Apache ghost killing people, and a gunfight with 100 rounds shot off, and nobody hurt. I suppose if you are writing a fantasy, you can make it as silly as you want.
