In Willie Boy, BLAKE says "One way or another, you die at the end". Prophetic words, BLAKE got jailed for the murder of Bonnie Lee BAKLEY & released after 1 year. In 2008 he paid 15 M$ to the family to close the case
This is a modern Western (despite 1969) about race hatred & manhunt of a Piute Indian accused of murder. Nobody asks for evidence & investigation. A powerful & tense film with excellent actors (Redford, Blake) & marvellous shots in desert landcapes. A forgotten jewel; what a shame & pity. Unfortunately, Katharine Ross is a miscast, because she is not 'original/credible' enough in & for the Lola character. A must see.
