4.0 out of 5 stars Good enough!, 8 Oct 2013
This was worth seeing for the subject matter -- though the Richard Burton 'lookalike' could not really convey the actor's special
charisma.

4.0 out of 5 stars An iconic film., 24 Dec 2012
This is an iconic film, and with Brando in charge you can expect the unexpected! He became enamoured of Tahiti and bought a nearby island for himself. (Well, we'd all like that wouldn't we?!)

Well worth viewing.
Brando Rides Alone: A Reconsideration of the Film &hellip by Barry Gifford
This slender volume contains 37 pages which loosely examine the film "One-Eyed Jacks" - but I feel I am being too generous!

I learned nothing from it of any interest; and the book's critical credentials (on JACKS) are about nil. More than disappolnting, to this reader.

JMF (European......Mr Gifford has a few bones to pick with 'Europeans'....).
