John Huston and Burt Lancaster clashed over this 1960 western—the director wanted to emphasize the psychodrama, the producer-star needed a genre hit—and their differences are evident in the movie's erratic tone. Some images are stylish and chilling, like the one-eyed vigilante in the desert promising doom for an exotic Texas rancher (Audrey Hepburn) that he insists is a Kiowa. Her adoptive family, headed by big brother Lancaster, is thrown into conflict when the natives come to reclaim her. Most of those scenes are stiffly conventional, though one, in which matriarch Lillian Gish answers the tribe's war music with a piano solo on the prairie, is a corker. With Audie Murphy, Doug McClure, and Charles Bickford. 121 min.
