  • An entertaining and wholly different type of western, Martin Ritt's HOMBRE is based on a novel by Hollywood favorite Elmore Leonard (JACKIE BROWN). Paul Newman stars as John Russell, a white man raised by Apaches. When his last living relative dies, Russell inherits property that he decides to sell to a man in a neighboring town. So, Russell gets a ride on a stagecoach, along with seven other white passengers, to make the sale. However, when Russell's Apache heritage is discovered, the other passengers force him to ride on top of the coach. Along the way, the coach is raided by thieves who steal its horses and a substantial amount of money from one of the passengers, named Favor. Russell is able to get the money back from the thieves, but Favor's wife has been taken hostage and, robbed of their horses, the passengers are stranded. Russell is indifferent to the fate of Favor's wife, but the group cannot argue because he is the only one among them who knows the way home. Chased by the thieves for the money they still have, the group has to make a stand at an abandoned mine where they call on Russell to save Favor's wife.
