    The 1991 movie "City Slickers" was a cowboy comedy, starring Billy Crystal as "Mitch" and Jack Palance as "Curly." Curly is a seasoned and grizzled cowhand. Mitch is a perpetually unhappy middle-aged man, never sure of himself, restless, struggling. The men have a talk on the trail where Curly reveals to Mitch the one key to happiness in all of human life.
