Product Description

John Huston directs Burt Lancaster, Audrey Hepburn and Lillian Gish in this western set in the Texas wilderness in which a stranger rides into town and manages to begin a small war within the community when he reveals a secret. The Zachary family is overseen by mother Matilda (Gish), and consists of three brothers (Lancaster, Audie Murphy and Doug McClure) and an adopted sister Rachel (Hepburn). However, the stranger claims that Rachel is a member of the Kiowa tribe of Indians and the fragile peace within the community is shattered; with the Zachary's having to confront their own feelings of racism and loyalty and some of the inhabitants of the town turning against the family.

From Amazon.co.uk

No relation to the 1992 Clint Eastwood film of almost the same name, 1959's The Unforgiven is based--like John Ford's The Searchers--on a novel by Alan LeMay. Again the story focuses on a frontier family divided by racism. But instead of the complex, endlessly resonant demonology of the Ford picture, here John Huston aims for a pat, civil-rights-era allegory of loving solidarity triumphing over societal prejudice--and, to be sure, some noble but dangerous Kiowas. Burt Lancaster and Audrey Hepburn costar as, respectively, the eldest son of a ranching family and the beloved sister who's not his sister at all, but an Indian. However, the film's dark heart belongs to Joseph Wiseman as an avenging ghost who materialises out of the wind and Lillian Gish as the matriarch who will do whatever she must to protect her clan. --Richard T Jameson

Format: DVD
Which is a shame because after an admittedly slow laborious first third, the film kicks on from the moment the Kiowa Indian's turn up asking for the return of their kin. The film is gorgeous to look at (Franz Planer shooting out of Durango, Mexico) and benefits from some sterling performances from those involved. Big bad Burt Lancaster broods as the big brother, and it was wonderful to see Audrey Hepburn playing a down to earth character, no glam and glitter here; in fact it was kind of special watching her with rifle in hands firing away. The ending took me a little by surprise {but in a good way}, and I was fully satisfied that I had just watched an involving and entertaining genre piece. If Huston did indeed consider this one of his worse films then I look forward to catching many more of his misfires. 7/10

I can't understand people who write reviews like the previous reviewer, he is nitpicking. He is obviously a professional critic, only those people write such rubbish.
This film is one of the best westerns made, it is a superior movie to the one eastwood made with the same title. The acting is superb, what can you expect, when you have such an all star pedigree cast.
If you love westerns and want a good film to pass the evening, when there is nothing interesting on the box. Put on this film, you won't be disappointed.

This is a classic John Huston 1960 psychological Western giving Audie Murphy one of his best roles since The Red Badge of Courage also directed by Huston. A good strong cast,Lancaster,Hepburn ,in an unusual role for her,Bickford,Wiseman,Saxon,Salmi,the young Doug McClure and Lilian Gish
play out a story of bigotry and racial tension on the Texas Panhandle. Prejudice provokes conflict amongst the family and the nieghbours with Hepburn branded as half indian. Murphy especially in the key role of the brother torn between his hatred of Indians and his love for his foster sister is excellent. Strong support from Burt Lancaster as you would expect make this a worthwhile film to watch again and again.

Unusual Western made at a time when Westerns were starting to fail at the US box office, and the Scott,Murphy band of western heroes were on their way out -the dozens of westerns on ABC,NBC,CBS et al did the cinema efforts no favours .

Unpredictable ( no spoilers from me ! )

Burt Lancaster seems rather over-earnest - with films like The Swimmer and Go tell the Spartans his best roles were in the future and Audie Murphy is out of his depth.

A brave role for Audrey Hepburn to take on

Slow start and too many similarities to the Searchers,but a sound addition to the genre

Well, my review is based on sound and transfer quality. However, on my Region Free Oppo player there was a frame rate problem. Frames skipped, probably due to a PAL discrepancy. First time I have had the issue on a European Blu Ray. Usually I see this as a minor distraction on DVDs. For US consumers I recommend waiting for the KINO pressing. For you folks in Europe it is AOK. Great movie, just beware if you are a US consumer. I returned the disc for a full refund. I am completely satisfied.

This DVD has another actor in it from Hollywoods golden past Burt Lancaster and Audrey Hepburn when she was at the start of her career, she plays a woman who is what was then known as a half breed and the producers she comes up against.

I liked the film, but had expected more action. Acting was good, but the story was not exactly what I had thought.
