John 'Hombre' Russell is a white man raised by the Apaches on an Indian reservation and later by a white man in town. As an adult he prefers to live on the reservation. He is informed that he has inherited a lodging-house in the town. He goes to the town and decides to trade the place for a herd. He has to go to another city. The only stagecoach is one being hired for a special trip paid by Faver and his wife Audra. As there are several seats others join the stagecoach making seven very different passengers in all. During the journey they are robbed. With the leadership of John Russell they escape with little water and the money that the bandits want. They are pursued by the bandits. As they try to evade the bandits they reveal their true nature in a life threatening situation. Written by

Hey, what's going on?
I'm moving you out. I want you to take your socks, your cigar stubs, your long johns, and your nickel-plated sheriff's badge, and amble back down the hall to your own room.
I like it here.
Can't quite remember how you got squatter's rights in here, anyhow. Seems to me you came by one night to ask for an extra blanket and stayed a year.

A unique, thought-provoking story about the unheralded qualities of a brooding, social outcast. Well-written, well-directed, well-cast production without pretense. Paul Newman is excellent and low-keyed like his character (few words, no-nonsense, non-idealistic); his presence gives the other actors room to perform. Newman's character is a self-controlled savage but with a legitimate grievance as a half-breed Apache. Richard Boone is outstanding as the outlaw lead who won't take no for an answer. His character is mean and overbearing but he meets his match in Newman's - although Boone's character is slow to recognize that fact. Cameron Mitchell is also excellent as the burnt out lawman who 'goes bad' and joins Boone's gang. Diane Cilento is a delight as the housekeeper who slowly takes an interest in Newman's callous character. Martin Balsam plays the Mexican friend of Newman's; another very good, low-key performance.
Fredric March plays a bitter, aging, two-faced reservation agent whose greed creates the circumstances that forces Newman's character to 'defend bigots against bandits'. The stand 'Hombre' takes requires the courage to deal with the harshness in unhesitatingly brutal fashion while ignoring the fact that the odds are increasingly stacked against you. The irony in the final scene is a pretty good metaphor for the cruel unfairness in life that too many of us suffer.
