Trivia

Costume designer Edith Head began work on this film before her contract with Paramount ended in the spring of 1967. It is debatable how much of her finished work still remains in the completed film. However, she maintained in her personal record of 1000+ films she worked on during her career that this was one of her films. See more »

Unusual, but great
23 June 2003 | by fanaticitaSee all my reviews

A typical Western in a way, but with Terence Stamp as the star, it is anything but typical. As a man who doesn't fit in anywhere, Blue tries to enter the culture he was born into, but is not entirely accepted. He doesn't want to return to his adoptive father and the lifestyle of a bandit. His journey to acceptance by all and his lingering affection for the only life he had known previously finally comes to a conclusion in one of the most devastatingly beautiful yet tragic scenes I've seen in a long time.

Yes, it's true Stamp's British accent slips in and one wonders where the heck is this cowboy from??!! But it's not a big distraction. Rent it and see for yourself. Stamp is awesome!
