I couldn't accept McQueen as a "halfbreed." The character is a kind of a simpleton or so it seems. The best parts of this movie are the spectacular scenery and a very believable Brian Keith who really owns this movie.
- Bruce C
A very under rated Steve McQueen vehicle. Brain Keith develops a lot of the film'swarmth and gritty guidance of McQueen's character with his own persona. The twocreated some noticeable on screen chemistry. The video locations are some of the best - very vivid - like a western should encompass. Its a well put together movie.
We need this movie in blu ray
I think that Steve Mcqueen delivers a good and believeable performance in Nevada Sm, 1966. This western is one of the better put together stories, it works. I would like to see this movie in blu ray, soon.
The cinemaphotography in this movie is awesome. Some of the most beautiful country on the planet, and except for the obvious scenes in the Lousiana swamps, it was filmed right here in my own state of California. Owens Valley, Inyo National Forest, Bishop and our beautiful Sierras. The scenery was the true star of this movie. Steve McQueen is always good, but the movie compares nothing to the book. I don't know if you've read The Carpetbaggers, it was a very good book but way, way more violent then anything the movie could have portrayed. The way Nevada Smith killed the three men in the book still gives me chills when I think about it. I've always heard that the book was a loose adaptation of Howard Hughes' life, can't remember why.So regardless of how good or bad the movie is, for me, I couldn't take my eyes off the scenery.
Nevada Smith (1966)
- Jay Higgins
Very well produced, excellent cinematography and score. It's a good story but way overlong. The period detail is only fair. It wasn't always authentic looking. The performances are fine. Great use of location filming.
