One-Eyed Jacks

Co-presented by The Marlon Brando Trust

One-Eyed Jacks is a epic, technicolor tale of deception and deceit in the West, told through the eyes of someone… heavily influenced by Freud. Rio/”Kid” (Brando) is hellbent on seeking revenge against his former partner in crime, Dad Longworth, who left him for dead when a bank robbery went south. After years of searching up and down the California coast, he finds his bounty, only to fall in love with Longworth’s daughter. Brando got his lucky seat in the director’s chair when the studio fired Stanley Kubrick and he volunteered himself up. A box office disaster when it was released, the film required Brando to star in five additional movies to pay off the tab alone, giving him second thoughts about ever taking another turn as director. One time deal. Don’t miss it.

Dir. Marlon Brando, 1961, DCP, 141 min.
