Nevada Smith by Henry Hathaway( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nevada Smith is a rugged innocent boy born in the 1890's during California's gold rush days to an Indian mother and white father. When he finds his parents have been murdered by vicious killers, he sets out to track them down. While the film is a western, and has plenty of action, it is also a powerful and revealing study of the regeneration of a man, in this case a lone gunslinger who is so blinded by this compulsion that it obscures any other motive for living. Steve McQueen's dynamic presence as Nevada Smith is memorable
