(1968, Sidney Pollack) Stubborn fur trapper Burt Lancaster and runaway slave Ossie Davis bicker their way through the old West – while Telly Savalas and Shelley Winters shack up in her covered wagon – and then the Kiowa come. 35mm. Approx. 102 min.


“A rousing comedy-Western with an amiable tone… Lancaster gives one of those performances of his that really work and yet are so odd that it’s hard to know why they work.”
– Pauline Kael
