Lonesome cowpoke Kirk Douglas feels the mid-20th century closing in on his range-roaming ways in this elegiac classic. After busting out of jail, he clambers up New Mexico’s Sandia Mountains on horseback in a desperate bid to stay free. Journeyman director David Miller fuses mythic struggle and epic scope with real grit and human scale. Douglas thought it his best film, and it’s hard to argue. -Lee Gardner
