Movie Info

One of Hollywood's most famous and acclaimed directors, John Huston guides this western with an unerring hand -- the cast of notable stars is no drawback either. Setting up the story with a series of suspenseful scenes, Huston has a mysterious stranger on horseback come into a small community in the Texas Panhandle and then proceed to cause a mini-war. The time is the mid-19th century and there is already antagonism between the white settlers in the community and the local Kiowa Indian nation.

This film ... comes draped in the hair shirt of revisionism, but in reality it's an unrepentant throwback to the "good old days" when the only good Indian was a dead Indian.

Considering how Huston and Lancaster have artistic disagreements over filming, it surprisingly still turned out relatively well.

Audience Reviews for The Unforgiven

The exact opposite of Ford's The Searchers plotwise (wherein a widdle baby white girl gets kidnapped and brought up redskin), a widdle baby Native is kidnapped and brought up white. The moral of the tale: racism is bad if you hate the redskin girl raised in the busom of good ol'godfearin', Pilgrim ancestor family ways, but its good if it means whackin' off the rest o'th'filthy varmints. Leave your common sense by the door and its not as bad as it sounds.

Exciting western tale of forbidden love set against America's most rugged and ruthless frontier. Audrey Hepburn is my idol.
