Format: DVD
Lonely Are The Brave is directed by David Miller and adapted for the screen by Dalton Trumbo from the novel "The Brave Cowboy" written by Edward Abbey. It stars Kirk Douglas, Gena Rowlands, Walter Matthau & George Kennedy. Cinematography is from Phillip H. Lathrop and Jerry Goldsmith scores the music in what was his first major studio work.

John (Jack) W. Burns is an old school cowboy who refuses to adapt to the new world he finds himself in. Modern technology is alien to him and he would rather perpetually roam with his horse Whiskey than ever contemplate getting in a car or a jet. Upon learning that his dear friend Paul (Michael Kane) is in jail, it's not long before Jack himself finds he's in jail after a barroom fight.....and then promptly sets about breaking Paul and himself out. Only Paul doesn't want to go, he wont jeopardise the family life waiting for him on the outside by becoming a fugitive. Jack escapes and heads for the hills on Whiskey, with the law, and all their modern technology, in hot pursuit.

Officially Douglas' favourite film in his long and varied career, Lonely Are The Brave is a wonderfully elegiac picture about a man out of his time. Boosted by impeccable lead performances, a great script and gorgeous black & white photography, it's hard to believe it was met with a lukewarm response upon its release. Set in 1950s New Mexico the film elegantly tells how the frontier is vanishing; to be replaced by progress and technology. Douglas' character, a wandering cowboy, is a symbol of nostalgia, where Trumbo's screenplay offers a cautionary observation about restriction of freedom and individuality. Themes close to home with the writer with the HUAC incidents still fresh in the memory.

This is a movie i seen maybe 25 years ago and it is great to see it get a decent release with some extras.It is fairly well reviewed previously so i will just let fans know about this new american release.The extras consist of two featurettes 1."Lonely are the brave;a tribute"(19;12)which includes Kirk and Michael Douglas as well as co-star Gena Rowlands and fan Steven Spielberg. 2."The music of Lonely are the brave"(9;46)which looks back at the score by the late great Jerry Goldsmith.A nice if not substantial set.

Format: DVD
How sad that this is the only available version of this very fine film. It is directed by David Miller and is a contemporary Western starring Kirk Douglas as John W "Jack" Burns a roaming ranch hand. The film is based on the wonderful book "The Brave Cowboy"(56) by Edward Abbey which I have also reviewed. Kirk Douglas apparently read the book and was so impressed that he persuaded Universal to film it as a vehicle for him to star in. It was a personal film for Douglas who often called it his favourite. The ex blacklisted writer Dalton Trumbo who wrote Spartacus several years before was recruited to write the screenplay. Rather appropriate in light that this is something of a protest movie shortly before that movement became more popular.

In the story Burns is a cowboy who rejects modern technology and is unable to embrace modern society. He would not like todays computer age! In the film he says " A Westerner likes open country. That means he's got to hate fences. And the more fences there are, the more he hates them". This sums up his personal philosophy. Burns has no social security card, no driving licence and refuses to register for the draft. In short something of a rebel. When a close friend is jailed, he thinks nothing of deliberately getting himself arrested and trying to spring his friend. There is a very entertaining scene where he fights a one armed man in a bar to achieve this. In jail his friend refuses his help so Jack escapes anyway and takes to his splendid horse "Whiskey". Together they head for the mountains pursued by the law making full use of modern technology in the form of vehicles and helicopters. Jack has an appointment with destiny.

The film is helped with a good cast.

In this moving and ultimately tragic story of a free spirited man who has been born far too late for his time, Kirk Douglas brilliantly plays a drifting cowboy whose loyalty to his best friend makes him start a fight in a local bar so he can get inside a jail to see his friend and help him break out. To his chagrin, his friend decides to stay put because his sentance is quite short, so Kirk escapes on his own. He is pursued by the local sherrif, superby played by Walter Matthau, who starts to empathise with the man he is hunting and when they finally meet at the end of the chase it is in circumstances that are unforeseen and tragic.

It is a well told and moving film about the deep loyalty of one man towards another and the close bond between a man and his horse. The cowboy's loathing of the many restrictions imposed on his way of life in the modern day American west proves to be his undoing.
