THE UNFORGIVEN (Released to Theaters in the USA 1960)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.3|5.0 Stars

The Unforgiven has several seriously irresolvable plot holes in its story, but the interesting take on a secret, long held by a family and honored by the community they live in, makes up for those plot holes. The pairing of Burt Lancaster with Audrey Hepburn (Breakfast at Tiffany's and My Fair Lady) seems, at first incongruous, but works quite well as Ms. Hepburn quickly shows her versatility in working with strongly different personality types. The movie follows a traditional western theme with a few unexpected twists and turns in its story.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director John Huston for directing effort. Thank you to Producer James Hill for making the film possible. Cast includes Burt Lancaster, Audrey Hepburn, and Audie Murphy. 

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This is a good watch and tells a great story. Burt Lancaster and Audrey Hepburn work very well in lead roles. The movie rolls gritty drama, action and romance into one as it works its western themed story.
