Little Big Man Reviews
Jack Crabb is a man that was raised by Indians before eventually getting lost and adopted by the white man. He becomes civilized again before falling back in with his original tribe, settling down with an Indian, and raising a family. Custer invades his people and spares him. He serves as a scout for Custer until he gets an opportunity for revenge.
"You are back in the bosom of your family."
Arthur Penn, director of Missouri Breaks, Bonnie & Clyde, The Miracle Worker, Dead of Winter, Night Moves, Target, and The Chase, delivers Little Big Man. The storyline for this picture is entertaining, fun to watch unfold, and occasionally funny. The script is interesting and doesn't take itself too seriously. The cast delivers solid performances and includes Dustin Hoffman, Faye Dunaway, Richard Mulligan, Kelly Jean Peters, and Jeff Corey.
"Don't make any moves unless you want a little daylight in your liver."
I came across this on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and decided to DVR it. This was better than average and a fun western picture. This movie doesn't take itself too seriously and "fun" is the best adjective I could use to describe this. This isn't perfect but is worth a viewing.
"I've never been invisible before."
Everyone is great in this. Hoffman, Dunaway and Chief were my favorites. I like the way the old man introduces everyone by exaggerating their personalities to make them memorable. You really get the sense that you're a little kid listening to a grandfather trying to humor you.
