Paul Newman stars in a mixture of myth and antimyth directed by John Huston. A host of stars—Stacy Keach as an albino gunman, Ava Gardner as Lily Langtry, Anthony Perkins, and Roddy McDowall among them—put in cameo appearances, but the bear has the best bits. Newman does a remarkable John Huston impression, and screenwriter John Milius demonstrates once again that he went to film school (1972).
