Overview

Western bandit Marlon Brando is betrayed by his partner Karl Malden. Released from prison, Brando learns that Malden has become a wealthy and influential lawman. Brando thirsts for revenge, but bides his time, waiting for the right moment to strike. In the meantime, Brando spitefully seduces Malden's adopted daughter Pina Pellicer. After participating in a botched holdup, Brando is publicly whipped by the powerful Malden. When Brando's old gang accidentally kills a child during another holdup, Malden has the perfect excuse to eliminate the troublesome Brando once and for all by hanging him. But that's not what happens at all. Stripped to its fundamentals, One-Eyed Jacks is a workable western, worthy of perhaps 90 minutes' running time. But when Marlon Brando succeeded Stanley Kubrick in the director's chair, he allowed the film's 60-day shooting schedule to stretch into six months, and delivered a finished product running in excess of four hours! The current 141-minute version of One Eyed Jacks isn't as ponderous as some critics have claimed, but is still too much of a good thing. While Brando the director isn't precisely in the Kubrick class, Brando the actor delivers one of his finest and most focused performances (though he is upstaged throughout by Karl Malden).

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Costello
Often described by director Martin Scorsese as his favorite Western, Marlon Brando's only foray into directing resulted in one of the most interesting films in the genre. Brando plays an outlaw abandoned on a Mexican mountainside by his partner Karl Malden, while escaping from a posse. After doing a five-year hitch in a Mexican prison, Brando goes looking for revenge. A film whose troubled production history included contributions by Sam Peckinpah and Stanley Kubrick, in many ways it's a precursor to the operatic, slow-motion oaters of Sergio Leone. Basically a standard Western, it's raised a few notches by a great performance from Brando, who is given all he can handle by a memorably sadistic Malden. The pace of the scenes is undeniably slow, and one's enjoyment of the film probably depends on the extent to which viewers find Brando's myriad expressions of slow-burning rage compelling. Either Brando has an excellent eye or he was lucky in his choice of cinematographer Charles Lang, because the photography of Monterey, the Sierras, and the Mexican coastline is spectacular. Katy Jurado, Slim Pickens, Ben Johnson, and the always disturbed Timothy Carey round out the colorful cast.

    Mr. Shaft says...

    The Diamond brand DVD is pretty decent. Contrary to BN.com, it IS letterboxed. We don't think the movie is too long. It flows nicely, and the photography is superb. The dialog is excellent.
