Nevada Smith is the young son of an Indian mother and white father. When his father and mother are killed by three men over gold, Nevada sets out to find them and kill them. The boy is taken in by a gun merchant. The gun merchant shows him how to shoot, to shoot on time, and to shoot straight. Everything that Nevada does goes to killing those three men. He learns to read and write just to learn their location. He pays people to tell him where they're at. He even goes to prison to kill one of them. While the movie is a Western and has plenty of action, it also takes a deep look into vengeance and how one can change after a haunting incident. Written by

The role of Nevada Smith was originally created by Alan Ladd in The Carpetbaggers (1964). A prequel highlighting the Smith character with Ladd was proposed, but the actor's untimely death at age 50 precluded that. See more »

Go on home, boy. Take the shortcut.
The sun was in my eyes and I wasn't expecting it!
Do you expect a man's gonna hold still for you with the sun at your back, and give you warning so you can stand there and shoot at him?
I can hit a rabbit at 80 yards with a rifle.
A rabbit don't shoot back. And how you think you're gonna swing a rifle in a barroom.

What I believe is the biggest problem with this film
What I think is the biggest problem with Nevada Smith is casting a 40 year old blond with blue eyes to play a 16 year old half Native American. It is distracting throughout the whole story. Sometimes it is even ludicrous because a couple of times people seem to recognize on sight that he is Native American. Couldn't they have at least dyed his hair black and give him some contact lenses for Pete's sake? And what was supposed to be a sweet "coming of age" scene with the young Native American girl just looked WRONG. Steve McQueen was a good actor and all, but throughout the whole movie I was using my imagination replacing him with a young Bronson or someone a little more appropriate to the character he was playing.
