The photo in the closing credits of the film was taken in 1886 by Camillus Fly, the famous Tombstone (AZ) photographer. The white boy in the photo is Jimmy (Santiago) McKinn, captured by the Apaches in 1885. Like the Paul Newman character in the film, McKinn was totally assimilated in the tribe and was rescued against his will when Geronimo surrendered in 1886. See more »

Are you interested in human nature? Great films like "Hombre" work by putting a bunch of people together in a dramatic situation that needs resolving. The unfolding of the story grips your attention because you can relate to the emotions involved and you can understand the games being played by the characters. You can see into human nature.
"Hombre" works at the highest levels. Flawlessly acted by an ensemble cast, it never misses a beat in its understated style as it explores Good, Evil and everything in between. Would you risk your life for a bunch of strangers? What sort of person does, and why?
"Hombre" tells the story.
