Location: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Stuart Rosenberg. 1972, 102 mins. Digital projection. With Paul Newman, Lee Marvin, Strother Martin, Wayne Rogers, Héctor Elizondo. Two hard-luck cowboys smuggle a cattle herd across the border in this ambling buddy comedy, one of three films penned by Malick in his days as an industry scribe. In need of some fast cash, Jim Kane (Newman) accepts an offer from a shady rancher to escort 250 rodeo cattle from Mexico to the United States. Kane convinces his laidback pal Leonard (Marvin) to accompany and the two set out on a rambling, scatterbrained adventure. From the lovingly detailed Texas setting to the ruminative tone, the preoccupations of early Malick are evident throughout.
Free with Museum admission or with a ticket to the same-day screening of Days of Heaven. Those who purchased tickets online will be contacted by Museum staff. (Members may contact [email protected] with questions regarding online reservations.)
