ONE-EYED JACKS / THE HIRED HAND
35 mm!

ONE-EYED JACKS
1961, Universal, 141 min, USA, Dir: Marlon Brando

Originally intended as a project for director Stanley Kubrick (based on various scripts by Sam Peckinpah and Rod Serling, among others), ONE-EYED JACKS became (in)famous as the only film directed by Marlon Brando – who also stars as an outlaw bent on taking revenge on former friend Karl Malden. A surreal and often stunning film that anticipated postmodern Westerns like Monte Hellman’s THE SHOOTING and Peckinpah’s own THE BALLAD OF CABLE HOGUE.

THE HIRED HAND
1971, Universal, 90 min, USA, Dir: Peter Fonda

This quietly unassuming but powerful Western languished for decades in obscurity - until it was recently restored in a beautiful new print through the efforts of director and star Peter Fonda, editor Frank Mazzola and the Sundance Channel. After many years away, world-weary Harry (Peter Fonda) returns to the family farm with easygoing pal Arch (the superb Warren Oates), only to be greeted by bitter wife Hannah (Verna Bloom). Determined to settle down, Harry’s healing relationship with Hannah is imperiled when grudge holders from the past threaten him. The stunning, near-hallucinatory cinematography by Vilmos Zsigmond looks even better today than it did in 1971. Not to be missed!
