Steve McQueen grows from boy to man in movie
- Lynda Cooper
I think this is one of Steve McQeen's best movies. He can say more with a look than with a line. I love the story and the supporting actors. I love how the story takes the innocence of a boy to a boy with nothing but revenge as his goal in life. Then as he grows into a man begins to learn the lesson Stark was trying to teach him. Revenge leads to nothing but killing and death, not necessarily a physical death but death of a soul. I love the ending as he realizes this.This is a movie that you can watch over and over and never get tired of. From the director, to the composer to the actors, this movie will be among the best of westerns.
- Bill Larstead
I can't believe the river boat captain is listed in the credits, who had but 2 lines, but the gorgeous blond who plays the widow Coe who had a very memorable scene w/ Max Sand in her bedroom is NOT listed. Does anyone know the name of this actress? What other films or TV shows did she appear in?
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.
