Lonely Are the Brave

Edition 1991
107' - 1962 - Western, Drama - Dialogue: Spanish, English
Director: David Miller Composer: Jerry Goldsmith With: Kirk Douglas, Gena Rowlands, Walter Matthau
Lonely Are the Brave, astutely scripted by Dalton Trumbo, picks an obvious example to make the point of man's plight in the mechanized world - the beloved American cowboy, roaming the handsome, spacious West in the company of just one companion, his horse. It touched several sensitive areas of the mass psyche when it was first released: the desire to be an individual, the contempt tor technology and organized society and the slipping away of old values. It is the story of a loner trying to live by his own code, but eventually being beaten by society.
