Product Description:

Jack Burns tries to spring his friend from jail and ends up on the wrong side of the law and on the run alone. The sheriff must bring him to justice even though his sympathies lie with Jack.

Product Description:

Academy Award winner Kirk Douglas ignites the screen with one of his most personal roles as a cowboy on a collision course with the modern world in Lonely are the Brave. After landing himself in jail trying to break out his friend, Jack Burns (Douglas) finds himself alone and on the run from the law. Leading the manhunt is Sheriff Morey Johnson (Walter Matthau), who must bring Burns to justice despite his own sympathy for the fugitive. Co-starring Gena Rowlands, George Kennedy and Carroll O'Connor, Lonely are the Brave is an unforgettable portrait of a lawless man defying life in an orderly world.

Plot Synopsis:

Kirk Douglas, as cowboy Jack Burns, breaks jail to help
an old friend and heads for the state border with the sheriff,
played by Walter Matthau, in pursuit. Based on Edward Abbey's
elegiac novel "The Brave Cowboy" and written by Dalton Trumbo,
Burns's flight for freedom on his old horse, pursued by jeeps and helicopter, is an eloquent metaphor for the passing of the old West and its virtues.
