Movie Info

Half-breed Max Sand (Steve McQueen) witnesses the brutal murder of his parents and vows to track down and kill the gang of men who did it. On his quest, he meets Jonas Cord (Brian Keith), a gunsmith who unsuccessfully tries to persuade Max to give up his vendetta. Instead, Cord teaches Sand how to shoot, and the young avenger uses that skill as he tracks down the killers one by one, a bloody journey that takes young Sand, now calling himself Nevada Smith, to Louisiana and back out West.

    Solid, interesting, and unusual Western. The biggest problem is the casting. McQueen hands in an excellent performance, but he is supposed to be much younger than he is, and it doesn't quite work. Acting, directing, soundtrack, etc., are all top flight. If you like Westerns you'll probably enjoy this.

    A fine Western with a revenge of the title role that is actually a strong and revealing study of the regeneration of one man. At age 36, Steve McQueen is a bit hard to believe as a 'kid'. The story obviously spans many years in Max Sand's life and if the writers had played this up more McQueen's age would not have mattered. Even showing Max and Alex Chord in a winter setting followed by spring, something to show an extensive passage of time would have helped make McQueen's age more fitting. A superb cast of supporting actors backs up McQueen. Brian Keith is the perfect father figure who takes Max in and teaches him to use firearms and tells him about life and how to find the men who killed his parents. Suzanne Pleshette cannot be made to look bad no matter how hard the make up department tries. Even dirty and sweaty in the swamp, her natural beauty and class shine. These traits and her unique voice and soft movements steal any scene she is in. She almost upstages McQueen. Martin Landau, Arthur Kennedy and Karl Malden are as bad as any movie villains I ever saw.

    Good if a bit overlong western with Steve, oozing charisma, acquitting himself well as he changes from callow youth to hardened gunslinger. A great supporting cast helps immeasurably with Suzanne Pleshette standing out bringing a gruff sexy charm to her too few scenes.
