    We all went to see "The Reivers" Christmas week of 1969, and we went because it was a Steve McQueen movie. But over the years, and certainly this past Friday evening when McQueen was the "under the stars" subject, it becomes clearer and clearer to me that this film rests on the shoulders of the film's very fine supporting cast, and not the handsome leading man with the cool blue eyes and permed hair. Rupert Crosse (yes, wouldn't he have been great in "The Last Detail") and Will Geer steal this flick away from it's highly bankable star.And Burgess Meredith's evocative narration sets the right tone throughout, but especially in the climactic cellar scene between Boss and young Lucius. (Yes a screen climax in a Steve McQueen movie without McQueen.) Round the whole production out with a sweet and bucolic score by a young John Williams and you have a satisfying adventure yarn, stained as it was by the sexism and racism of it's era."The Reivers" probably doesn't get made without a bankable star - Newman ? Perhaps. James Coburn ? Hmmm, interesting casting choice, but not likely. So with each successive viewing I become more convinced this wasn't McQueens picture. By the way - in the early seventies, when Don Rickles was a guest host for Johnny Carson, he went up into the audience to skewer some of the folks, and I swear on my little Mom's white hair, that he pointed his microphone at Mitch Vogel, who tried to get out that he made "The Reivers" with Steve McQueen. But just as quickly Rickles turned away and said something like, "oh sure you did," prompting the audience to laugh, but prompting me to look into my television set out in Detroit, Michigan to say out loud, "He did! He did!"

    This is a wonderful movie that I haven't seen in many years. Steve McQueen is wonderful in a role that is a great departure from his usual. The musical score by John Williams has to be heard to appreciate. This is a very well done film.

    Faulkner's story is well done by McQueen, out of character, with a good supporting cast and wonderful period settings. A must see for fans of Faulkner and McQueen.
