    One of the best westerns ever made

    The time this event occurred was one of the worst in Native American history. Robert Blake plays Willie Boy with all the pathos, anger, bewilderment and wretchedness of the state of American Indians who were trying so hard to survive. The end is inevitable, and so tragic. The director did an admirable job in showing all facets of the white people's predicaments, as well. Robert Redford, I believe, was not the best choice for the role he played, but did a fair job. Likewise, Katherine Ross. She wasn't a believable indian girl but did the best she could with the material. Film sites were spectacular in true western fashion. This movie should be available on Home Video. It's a real testament to Robert Blake's tremendous talent; he carries this film, totally.

  • Great, more like it.

    Off the shelf great western. Tied to reality, colored by white people, distorted by history. A must see for all into the west.

  • An Overlooked Gem of a Little Movie

    Inexplicably, this movie has been overlooked as one of the finer little Western gems. Robert Redford portrays the reluctant protagonist, and I can't fault anyone in the cast. It's an engrossing tale of Whites meddling with Native American culture and the tragic consequences that ensue. The accurate portrayal of the era's racist attitude towards Indians reduces the eponymous character to the status of a hunted animal. As the prey, Robert Blake gives a fine performance that proves Willie Boy is a nobler, more heroic human being than his hunters. The fatalistic ending is dismaying and leaves the viewer shaking his head at man's inhumanity to man. In addition, Dave Grusin set the film to an off-beat, quirky soundtrack that often echoes in my head. I wish someone would issue it in a CD. I own this movie in VHS format but the color is starting to go. I wish this film would be re-released in blu-ray format because of the scenery. It's a worthy addition to any Western affectionato's library, right up there with John Wayne's The Searchers or Burt Lancaster's Unforgiven.

  • A movie about my husbands family..

    I have been trying to find this movie in dvd form to show it to my grandchildren...The part in the movie that Robert Redford plays is my husbands grandfather, who was not only the sheriff, but at one time the mayor and the fire chief of Beaumont California... I have seen this movie once, years ago, and would love to see it again!
