The Big Country

1958 Rated NR 2hr 47m

James McKay (Gregory Peck) retires from sea life and heads west in this frontier drama directed by William Wyler. McKay finds himself in the middle of a water-rights feud and wins no friends when he chooses to stay neutral. The cast includes Charlton Heston and Oscar-winner Burl Ives, but the true star of The Big Country is the Western plains' magnificent landscape.
