    The Missouri Breaks
    A rancher, a rustler, and a regulator face off in Arthur Penn's eccentric western. As a cover for their horse thievery, a gang of Montana rustlers, led by the laid-back Tom Logan (Jack Nicholson), buys a small farm adjacent to the ranch of their latest target/nemesis, Braxton (John McLiam). When the gang leaves Tom on the farm and heads to Canada for another score, Tom takes a shine both to farming and Braxton's rebellious, strong-willed daughter, Jane (Kathleen Lloyd). The slightly loco Braxton, however, hires the psychopathic regulator Lee Clayton (Marlon Brando) to root out the rustlers. With a series of unorthodox methods (and costumes), Clayton hunts down Logan and his gang one by one, even after Braxton fires him, but Logan isn't about to let Clayton (or Braxton) make him obsolete. ~ Lucia Bozzola, Rovi

      My Favorite Western Ever


      Only movie JN and MB appeared in together. The acting is great by entire cast. JN and MB are great together. Presume they never made another movie because this was not a "hit". It's a sleeper. Randy Quaid and other JN ensemble actors appear. It is serious subject matter but the movie is sprinkled with humor and Jack's love interest adds to the plot. Music is very good and costumes and settings are very authentic. Brando is excellent as the eccentric, menacing "regulator". The movie draws you in and you care about the characters.

      Gave it a star for each of it's powerhouse names that made this film happen (Arthur Penn, Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, & John Williams). It was long enough to build it's story with a fair amount of pacing. Excellent cinematography (the best thing in the movie), very believable set design (especially the "downtown" scene 3/4 in), but in my opinion, worthy view.
