Synopsis


The Big Country
In The Big Country Gregory Peck plays a seafaring man who heads west to marry Carroll Baker, the daughter of rancher Charles Bickford. Bickford is currently embroiled in a water-rights feud with covetous Burl Ives, so both he and his daughter are hoping that Peck can take care of himself. But Peck, who doesn't belief in fisticuffs, appears to be a coward, especially when challenged by Bickford's cocksure foreman Charlton Heston. The far-from-cowardly Peck decides to distance himself from the machismo overload at the Bickford spread, settling for a romance with headstrong schoolmarm Jean Simmons, whose water-rich lands are being fought over by the two warring ranchers. When Jean is kidnapped by Ives' no-good son Chuck Connors, Peck decides to take action. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Great Classic Western

    This is one of the great classic Westerns. It shows the change one man can bring to an entire area and how the West was won through better choices and fulfilling one's dreams. The theme sets upon a bitter age-old feud between two men who drag their families down with a battle over pride, greed and stupidity. Yet Gregory Peck and Jean Simmons shine as the two people who choose to make a positive future through hard decisions and sheer courage. It's the American Dream at its roots and entertainment at its finest. The music is also outstanding. If you want a great classic Western with a feel good ending that inspires forward thinking and pursuing one's dreams, this is the movie to watch.

    I love westerns...! After feeling like I've seen every great western out there, I started searching and hoping to find another. Finally I ran across this one, "The Big Country, on Blu-Ray." Every actor in here gives an excellent performance. Great music, great cinematography, and western landscape. If you feel like there's no more great westerns to watch, and you missed this one, get it, you'll love it...

    I bought this blu-ray during the father's day sale to upgrade my dvd copy of this movie. I haven't watched the blu-ray just yet, but as to the quality of the movie, it is superb. Fans of Gregory Peck, Charlton Heston or any of the other characters will find them giving great performances. A particular standout is Burl Ives.

    A good example of a great movie that is not quite as well known as others of the genre. Boasting an all-star cast, an outstanding director and sweeping cinematography; it is a must have for any Western fan. Of note is also the unforgettable theme music. I had this movie on DVD and jumped at the chance to upgrade it to Blu-ray.

    This is one of those life lessons movies. There are many of those movies made in years past. This one teaches about humility and being a strong man - among other pluses. Many things that we need in our world right now. Pick it up and watch it. Gregory Peck is awesome in this movie.
