William Wyler's epic Western stars Gregory Peck as retired sea captain Jim McKay who heads West to marry his fiancée Pat Terill (Caroll Baker), the spoiled daughter of a rich cattle baron. McKay soon becomes caught in the middle of a bitter feud between neighbouring ranchers. As the fight for watering rights on land owned by local schoolteacher Julie Maragon (Jean Simmons) intensifies and she is kidnapped, McKay must take action! Capturing all the grandeur of the old West, The Big Country is a story of love, greed and rivalry, set against magnificent landscapes with a stellar cast
