The Big Country

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

One of those Big Westerns - feuding families with rival patriarchs back on the farm - which aren't so much epic as long. Finely crafted, though, with some marvellous camerawork (Franz Planer), an outstanding performance from Heston, and a vague message about violence predictably underscored by a marathon fist-fight between Peck and Heston.
