"Jason Robards is superb in the title role of a prospector and desert rat who nearly dies in the desert before discovering a freshwater spring and reinventing himself as an entrepreneur."
This charming comic western features a winning performance by star Jason Robards as prospector Calble Hogue. Double-crossed and left for dead in the desert, Hogue recovers to find the only well for miles. Soon Hogue's turned the place into a thriving oasis and eventually his treacherous partners return so Hogue can have the revenge he hankers. An unusual but winning offering from the notoriously violent Peckinpah.
