Trivia:
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 »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: When John Russell is coming to Delgado to see Mendez, in the background are 3 or 4 farm vehicles working in the distance. The sun can be see gleaming from one of them as it moves through a dust cloud it is making.See more »
Quotes:
Braden:I been working since I was ten years old, Jessie, cleaning spittoons at a dime a day. It's now thirty years later, and all I can see out the window here is a dirt road going nowhere.

Best Paul Newman Movie, 15 February 2002
Author: Byron Callas (byroncallas@earthlink.net) 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.
