|JEREMIAH JOHNSON Soured by civilization, a would-be mountain man braves his first wilderness winter, battling hostile elements and going eyeball to eyeball with a grizzly. Robert Redford and director Sydney Pollack teamed for the second of their six films together on this box-office hit shot entirely in Utah.|
THE TRAIN ROBBERS Civil War veterans John Wayne, Rod Taylor and Ben Johnson team up with a train robbers widow to recover a cool half-million in hidden gold. The widow (Ann-Margret), the kind who “sticks out in all the right places,” wants to clear her husband's name. But the dead mans ex-partners just want the gold and will kill to get it.
THE WILD BUNCH Director Sam Peckinpah's powerful tale of hangdog desperados bound by a code of honor rates as one of the all-time greatest Westerns. Watch William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan and more great stars saddle up for the roles of a lifetime.
McCABE & MRS. MILLER Presbyterian Church is a small mining town in the turn-of-the-century Pacific Northwest and a perfect place where a gambler (Warren Beatty) and a bordello madam (Julie Christie) can do business. Robert Altman's dazzlingly original wilderness saga stands the mythology of the Old West on its ear to become “a modern classic” (Pauline Kael).
Editor's NoteOld frontier themes are dusted off and given a new life in this collection of gritty Western films from the late 1960s and early '70s. Included here are Sydney Pollack's pastoral JEREMIAH JOHNSON, starring Robert Redford; THE TRAIN ROBBERS, starring John Wayne; Sam Peckinpah's blood-soaked THE WILD BUNCH; and Robert Altman's genre-busting MCCABE & MRS. MILLER, starring Warren Beatty and Julie Christie. Please see individual titles for complete synopsis information.
