Storyline

Gunslinger Jacob Wade finds his long-abandoned son Riley, now a young man who hates his father but has nowhere else to go. Hoping to settle down, Jacob finds no town will have him. They end at Monolith, the ranch of Jacob's former girlfriend Ada, to whom he had no intention of returning. A mustang hunt finds Riley himself attracted to the shapely Ada...and Jacob having trouble with his eyesight. And his visions of a quiet life are doomed by the re-appearance of enemies from his past... Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

A forgettable western even with Jack Palance and Anthony Perkins.
28 October 1998 | by (Brea, California, USA) – See all my reviews

Jack Palance and Anthony Perkins give decent performances in this boring western that is filled with meaningless dialog and unbelievable situations. Location in Long Pine California brings some realism even in black and white but I still can not recommend The Lonely Man.
