Man of the West

Gary Cooper's last great Western is the story of a man who must revisit his past sins in order to exorcise them. Meeting up co-incidentally on a train with his old gang from 20 years ago, headed by sadistic patriarch Lee J. Cobb, Link (Cooper) is faced with the ultimate choice between 'good' and 'evil'. Widely overlooked by American critics, then-film critic Jean-Luc Godard named it one of 1958's best films.
