Cinematography by Richard Moore. "Desire" list. Another Paul Newman, two years after his 2nd film as director, the beautiful "Sometimes a Great Notion", that could also be in this list. But the fact is that in his forties the western characters become him very well and this one or Altman's "Buffalo Bill and the Indians" could be a right choice for this righteous man.
John Huston directed this irreverent western farce that's both a raucous send-up of Hollywood western conventions and an offbeat ode to an America past. The all-star cast is universally in top comic form, aided in no small part by a strong, sharp screenplay by John Milius. Another classic from Huston.
