Directed by Henry Hathaway
The dynamic screen presence of Steve McQueen (Hell is for Heroes, The Great Escape, The Hunter) is in full force in one of the iconic star’s best and most memorable westerns—Nevada Smith. Born in the 1890s to a Native American mother and a white father during the California gold rush, Nevada Smith (McQueen) has his life turned upside down after he finds that his parents have been murdered by vicious killers. He becomes a lone gunslinger, blinded by his compulsion for revenge, and will stop at nothing to show the killers his own brand of justice. Produced and directed by western great Henry Hathaway (Rawhide, True Grit, Shoot Out), Nevada Smith surrounds McQueen with breathtaking landscapes (courtesy of cinematographer Lucien Ballard, The Wild Bunch) and standout supporting actors like Karl Malden, Brian Keith, Arthur Kennedy, Suzanne Pleshette, Raf Vallone, Janet Margolin, Howard Da Silva, Pat Hingle, Paul Fix, Gene Evans and Martin Landau.
