Stanton is one of a group of hapless rustlers in this widely dismissed but endearingly bonkers revisionist Western, in which “regulator” Marlon Brando picks off a gang of cattle thieves one by one on the way to an eventual reckoning with gang leader turned farmer Jack Nicholson. Brando delivers an outlandish (largely improvised) performance but Nicholson holds his own.
