One Eyed JacksDVD
One-Eyed Jacks, Marlon Brando's first and only directing venture, is a stirring Western classic featuring breathtaking 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 (Karl Malden), his one-time partner in crime. The desperadoes' falling out occurs when Rio and Dad are out on the lam following a bank hold-up in Mexico. As they are running from the law, Dad takes the opportunity to escape with the stolen gold, leaving Rio in the lurch. Because of Dad's desertion, Rio is apprehended and sent up the river to do hard time. Years later Rio gets out of the slammer and goes after his double-crossing ex-partner to get revenge. He locates Dad in California and is outraged to learn that the former outlaw has become a powerful, affluent sheriff. Now, not only are the two men at odds with each other, but they are on oppositesides of the law as well. The stolen gold has made Dad wealthy, and he would like nothing better than to be rid of Rio for good. But Rio has an agenda of vengeance and is willing to do whatever necessary to finally settle the score.
