The only film directed by Marlon Brando combines classic midcentury Hollywood Western tropes with moody Method-style acting, resulting in a brawny, baroque, one-of-a-kind entertainment. A gang of bank robbers splits up after a heist gone wrong in Sonora, Mexico. Years later, one of the former outlaws, Dad Longworth (Karl Malden), is now a sheriff in Monterey, California. One day, a man rides into town who knows about Dad's criminal past: Rio (Brando), recently escaped from prison in Mexico and intent on revenge. The colorful cast includes Katy Jurado; Ben Johnson; Slim Pickens; Elisha Cook, Jr.; and Timothy Carey. DIR Marlon Brando; SCR Guy Trosper, Calder Willingham, from the novel "The Authentic Death of Hendry Jones" by Charles Neider; PROD Frank P. Rosenberg. U.S., 1961, color, 141 min. NOT RATED
