Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Bill G. Walsall England

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

More than a "great Western"
28 March 2000 | by teddles-4See all my reviews

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.
