Former blacklisted Martin Ritt ("Hud") directs this superior revisionist western, with a liberal slant, based on the novel by Elmore Leonard. It's a variant on John Ford's 1939 ‘Stagecoach’, as the outcast hero (played by Paul Newman) instead of running away from civilization in his final desperate act he moves toward it. A hard-bitten tale about racism, injustice and corruption, that is beautifully shot in the Death Valley and Halvetia Mines locations by acclaimed cinematographer James Wong Howe. Released in 1967, it is widely considered a classic of the genre and was the sixth and final movie that paired director Martin Ritt and star Newman,
