Synopsis:
Stanley Kubrick was originally set to direct this revenge western about an outlaw who seeks vengeance on a sheriff who once was his close friend; instead, star Marlon Brando took it over -- and it remains the only film he ever helmed.

Notes:
Filmed in VistaVision and Technicolor in Monterey, California and Mexico. Co-produced by High Desert Films. Feature film debut for actress Pina Pellicer. Director Sam Peckinpah wrote the first draft of the screenplay, but was replaced by Stanley Kubrick, the film's original director. Then Kubrick eventually quit over artistic differences and was replaced by the film's star, Marlon Brando. Budget was reported to be between $5-6 million. Additional cast: Sam Gilman (Harvey), Hank Worden (Doc), Margarita Cordova (Flamenco Dancer), Nina Martinez (Margarita), Glen Harvey, and William Forrest.
