Lonely Are the Brave (1962, b/w)


FILM4, 4.45PM ★★★

Adapted by David Miller from Edward Abbey’s novel The Brave Cowboy, this noir Western stars Kirk Douglas as a Korean War veteran who eschews modern technology and fights to free his old riding buddy, who has been arrested for helping illegal immigrants. It adds some original modern beats to the genre – the scene of a helicopter pursuing a lone horseman lingers in the memory.
