One-Eyed Jacks

4K Digital Restoration

Unlike any other Western. . . . The intensity and the energy of the actors just burst out of the edges of the screen.

Martin Scorsese

Marlon Brando, Karl Malden, Timothy Carey, Pina Pellicer,

Marlon Brando and Karl Malden fill the boots of Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett (thinly disguised as “Rio” and “Dad Longworth”) in Brando’s Freudian epic, which reviewers dubbed one of the first antihero Westerns. Real cowboys, aging starlets, a twenty-nine-year-old Stanley Kubrick, and the stunning Central California coastline round out the cast. Barry Gifford writes in Brando Rides Alone, “That Brando never again directed a movie may or may not have been a good thing, but with One-Eyed Jacks he accomplished what more celebrated directors could seldom do: he made an unforgettable film.”
