It’s ambitious, daring and weird in ways that do not call to mind the mid-50s. Based on a 1952 novel by Edna Ferber, the film recounts the life and times of a Texas cattle ranch tycoon and his wife, but in so doing, it looks ahead to the auteur epoch of the 1970s.

Sixty years later, George Stevens’s intimate epic Giant still seems like a wondrous anomaly: sweeping saga of American prosperity that reveals its racist underbelly; glorious star vehicle that upends rigid gender roles; modern western that questions the validity of frontier land ownership.

There are many long, slow dialogue scenes filmed in rather functional, static two-shots or medium shots, suggesting a hard parting from the prose of Edna Ferber’s source novel. But the film is not without its electrifying interludes, most notably a scene with Mercedes McCambridge (playing Bick’s sister Luz who is deeply jealous of Leslie) digging her spurs violently into the side of a horse in a bid to tame it.
