Academy Award® winner Kirk Douglas ignites the screen with one of his most personal roles as a cowboy on a collision course with the modern world in Lonely are the Brave. After landing himself in jail trying to break out his friend, Jack Burns (Douglas) finds himself alone and on the run from the law. Leading the manhunt is Sheriff Morey Johnson (Walter Matthau), who must bring Burns to justice despite his own sympathy for the fugitive. Co-starring Gena Rowlands, George Kennedy and Carroll O'Connor, Lonely are the Brave is an unforgettable portrait of a lawless man defying life in an orderly world.
What Great Motion Pictures There Once Were
A motion picture of extraordinary scope. The writing, the direction and the performances are first class. The sad reality is that these stories and motion pictures are no longer considered worthy. The onslaught of comic book films, although many are respectable efforts, have overcome and destroyed human dramas. It is most unfortunate that a balanced offering of motion pictures is no longer a viable business or of much interest to an ever increasingly disconnected and emotionally dysfunctional public.
Lonely are the Brave
I am so excited that you have this movie available. It is one of my favorite Kirk Douglas movies (the other is Lust for Life). I watched this movie for the first time in my teens, on a lazy Sunday afternoon. I was captivated by the story line. It helped that I realy loved horses and horse people at the time. Well, I still do. Great all around cast, that I didn't realy appreciate until now. They are the real actors! Keep these great ones comming I'll buy them!
