Description by

Brando plays a ruthless outlaw who has escaped from prison in this psychological western, set in Sonora, Mexico, 1880. Brando lives to settle the score with Karl Malden, his former partner in crime, who left him behind to be captured by the law. Great acting and wonderful photography makes this a must-see western that Brando, not only starred in, but also directed.

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Cinematography

Product Description:

This 1961 Western is Marlon Brando's only directorial effort. It's the Old West of 1880, and Brando stars as Kid Rio, who along with his partner, Dad Longworth (Karl Malden) are bank robbers who are caught holding up a Mexican bank. Longworth gets away and allows his partner to get caught and go to jail. When Rio is released five years later, he goes out to seek revenge; however, he is surprised to find his partner is married with a stepdaughter and sheriff of a town. Complications set in when Rio himself falls in love with the stepdaughter.

Stanley Kubrick was originally set to direct this revenge western about an outlaw who seeks vengeance on a sheriff who once was his close friend; instead, star Marlon Brando took it over -- and it remains the only film he ever helmed.
