Smalltown Texas in the early 60s, replete with inequality, injustice, rivalries, racism… and a cast to die for.
Dir Arthur Penn
With Marlon Brando, Jane Fonda, Robert Redford, EG Marshall, Robert Duvall
When an escaped convict (Redford) seeks refuge in his Texan hometown, all manner of prejudices, rivalries and hatreds arise among those who know him – and those who don’t... Lillian Hellman’s adaptation of Horton Foote’s play ties the many characters neatly together, while Penn handles the escalating hysteria and violence with expertise. The matchless cast also includes James Fox, Angie Dickinson, Miriam Hopkins and Janice Rule.
