United States | 1962 | David Miller
In this one-of-a-kind modern western written by Dalton Trumbo (from a novel by Edward Abbey), Kirk Douglas plays a fiercely independent, freedom-loving cowboy who breaks out of prison and tries to escape to Mexico before a posse armed with advanced technology can apprehend him. This poignant, “passing of the Old West” drama indelibly captures two conflicting American ways of life. It is reputedly Kirk Douglas’ favorite of all his films. With Gena Rowlands and Walter Matthau.
