The Kentuckian

1955, Movie, NR, 103 mins

An occasionally brutal, but generally plodding western from Lancaster (his first as a director), who fails to pump much life into the anemic script, giving the cast little to do. In his film's leading role, Lancaster journeys off for a better life in Texas with his son (MacDonald), but gets involved with a pair of feuding families. The best scene has an unarmed Lancaster pitted against a leathery Walter Matthau (in his first role), who viciously beats him with a bullwhip. A superb score, as we have come to expect, is provided by Bernard Herrmann.
Released: 1955 Rated: NR Length: 103 mins
