Did You Know?

Filming on "Hombre" coincided with that year's Academy Awards. Co-star Martin Balsam was a Best Supporting Actor nominee for A Thousand Clowns (1965), and not having received permission to leave the set, Balsam sneaked off to attend the ceremony. He won the Oscar.See more »
Anachronisms: In one scene, the sheriff bemoans the risks of his job, saying that he's a target for some "punk" looking to make a reputation for himself; the term, meaning a young hoodlum, did not come into use until 1917, long after the time period of the film.See more »
Grimes:Looks like you done good, but we done better.See more »

Best Paul Newman Movie, 15 February 2002
Author: Byron Callas ( from San Francisco, CA, USA

There are so many rave comments here about Hombre I won't repeat them. I'll just say this is my favorite Paul Newman movie of them all, and one of the best Western's ever made. Richard Boone is terrific as the villain. Newman's low-key performance is remarkably powerful and authoritative. Great cast, story, mood, with an almost Zen like quality in the unfolding and resolution. Hombre has stayed with me for 33 years.
