DIRECTOR: BLAKE EDWARDS
CAST: RYAN O'NEAL, WILLIAM HOLDEN, KARL MALDEN
Special extended introduction by Julie Andrews.
Two antiheroic cowboys, young Ryan O’Neal and world-weary William Holden, get fed up working for boss Karl Malden, and decide to relieve the local bank of its deposits before lighting out for the trail. What they didn’t count on is the tenacity of their old boss’s sons (Joe Don Baker and Tom Skerritt), who follow fast on their heels. Described by Edwards as his “best film,” its mishandling by MGM would inspire both he and his family to leave Hollywood and the venomous satire of S.O.B. We are screening the restored full-length version and not the studio edit.
