Overview

Adapted from William Faulkner's final novel, The Reivers top-bills Steve McQueen, but the major character is feisty 11-year-old Lucius McCaslin, played by Mitch Vogel. Growing up in Mississippi in the early 1900s, Lucius finds himself through a hectic series of circumstances in a bordello, where he is nearly killed trying to defend the "fast lady" Sharon Farrell who has befriended him. He has been brought to the house of ill repute by ne'er-do-well farm hand Boon Hoggenbeck Steve McQueen, with whom he has been tooling about the countryside in a vintage automobile, together with his very distant African-American relative Ned Rupert Crosse. This adventure segues into the next, as the three man combine their resources to train a broken-down racehorse. Meanwhile, Vogel's grandfather Will Geer, who owns the fancy automobile that the "reivers" hope to win back, threatens to reappear at any moment to tan Lucius's bottom. Not exactly as wholesome as a Disney film, The Reivers is nonetheless acceptable family entertainment, with Steve McQueen delivering one of his best and most laid-back performances.

    A really wonderful movie

    This has been a favorite of mine since it first came out and I hadn't seen it in years--so I was very happy to get the DVD. This movie is a real feel good movie: the performances are so good, it is very funny, and the music is a very big part of the feel. Steve McQueen is great and should have gotten more recognition. The film of the horse racing has some of the most beautiful shots of horses running ever. Your family will really enjoy this movie.
