R.L. Armstrong in The Missouri Breaks

The Missouri Breaks

1976 PG

Laid-back rustler Tom Logan (Jack Nicholson) and his gang buy a ranch next to their new target: rich landowner Braxton (John McLiam). While Logan courts his neighbor's daughter (Kathleen Lloyd), Braxton gets wind of the rustling plot and hires gunman Lee Clayton (Marlon Brando) to do the dirty work. Brando delivers an inspired, bizarre performance as the cross-dressing, perfume-soaked hit man in Arthur Penn's off-kilter Western.
