Cowboy Jim Kane's bank loan is due. So is his next alimony payment. And the Appaloosas he brought in from Mexico have been slapped into quarantine. What Jim needs is some Pocket Money.
Academy Award winners Paul Newman and Lee Marvin star in this sunny comedy also featuring two veterans of Newman's Cool Hand Luke: director Stuart Rosenberg and co-star Strother Martin (the infamous "Captain"). Newman plays rascally Jim and Marvin is his pal Leonard, a big talker full of ideas that never pan out. As laid down in the deft screenplay by Terrence Malick (Badlands, The New World), they're as likable a duo of drifters as ever rolled down the pike. Join 'em in their moneymaking venture and keep your fingers crossed.
Includes theatrical trailer.
With dreams to finance, Jim Kane (Paul Newman) takes his tough but dim friend Leonard (Lee Marvin) to Mexico in a get-rich-quick cattle scam. When they're cheated out of their cut by the crooked cattle baron, Jim and Leonard try to get what's theirs so they can go back home. Based on the novel by J.P.S. Brown, this quirky character study comes from director and frequent Newman collaborator Stuart Rosenberg (Cool Hand Luke).
