One-Eyed Jacks, Marlon Brando’s first and only directing venture, is a stirring Western classic featuring breath-taking cinematography and a magnificent musical score. Not only did Marlon Brando direct this motion picture masterpiece, lauded as Martin Scorsese’s favorite Western, but Brando also took on the premiere role of Rio, a man betrayed by Dad Longworth, his one-time partner in crime.
Running from the law after a bank robbery in Mexico, Dad Longworth finds an opportunity to take the stolen gold and leave his partner Rio to be captured. Years later, Rio escapes from the prison where he has been since, and hunts down Dad for revenge. Dad is now a respectable sheriff in California, and has been living in fear of Rio’s return.
