Paul Newman goes West in Hombre.

The filmmaking team of director Martin Ritt (Norma Rae) and screenwriters Irving Ravetch and Harriet Frank Jr. created this revisionist Western that offers a variation on the theme of Stagecoach. Paul Newman portrays the titular Apache-raised white man, initially despised by his fellow stagecoach passengers, who is then appealed to for help when a savage robbery/kidnapping leaves them in peril.

The movie also stars Fredric March (Inherit the Wind), Richard Boone (Big Jake), Martin Balsam (Psycho), and Diane Cilento (The Wicker Man).
