A severely beautiful Western based on the life of a semi-legendary cowboy who served as a cavalry scout, was then hired to wage secret war on Wyoming rustlers, and was eventually hanged by a society which had outgrown his maverick values. McQueen's performance is all the more affecting (his penultimate film) now that we know he was suffering from an incurable cancer. But the film's glaring production problems - rewrites to Thomas McGuane's script, change of director (it was started by James William Guercio), extensive re-editing - ruin what might otherwise have been an extraordinarily eloquent political fable.
