Pay no attention to Maltin's dsimissive review: this is a fine film. The entire cast is in excellent form, with DaSilva's miner and Robinson's snake oil salesman particularly noteworthy. Newman's performance as the bandit is peculiar but fascinating, and often hilarious. An amusing and thought-provoking movie from the 60's, a decade that gave us some of our best films.

One of my all time favorites since it came out in the sixties. In my line of work, there has always been an axiom that in every controversy, there is my story, your story, and the truth. This film does the best job of presenting this age-old dilemma of searching for the truth through biased observers. Not only that, it is extremely entertaining as well, with a cast to die for, each one protraying their character four different ways within the same film. Newman, Bloom and Harvey are magnificent, doing exactly what each version requires. There is quite a bit of humor as well, and I suppose some reviewers were put off by that, wanting the work to be more serious. Well, this film is proof that a serious subject can be dealt with in an entertaining fashion. Wish they would release in DVD.

Based on two of Akutagawa's writings ("Rashomon" and "In a Grove") and adapted for the screen by Akira Kurosawa, THE OUTRAGE is the story of a crime that's recounted by the three people involved, plus a fourth man who witnessed what happened. Their memories of an assault and murder vary widely; only one of them recalls the incidents accurately.

Martin Ritt directs and James Wong Howe is cinematographer of a most unusual western. With a fine script and superb cast-- this one is a standout!

Paul Newman's next significant picture after "Outrage" was HARPER (1966).
Laurence Harvey may be best-remembered for his portrayal of Raymond Shaw in THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE (1962).
Claire Bloom co-starred with Richard Burton in Martin Ritt's classic THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD (1965).
Edward G. Robinson is excellent as king of poker players Lancey Howard in THE CINCINNATI KID (1965).
William Shatner's finest screen work was in Roger Corman's racially-charged THE INTRUDER (1962).

Unlike a lot of the reviewers I have no frame of reference in comparing this Western remake of Kurasawa's original so I have to judge the film on it's own terms. It's a good film that posits alot of interesting food for thought not the least that cowardice and vanity are sins comparable to rape and murder. That said it doesn't live up to it's potential. I attribute that to the hammy performances by the film's principals and Paul Newman is not exempt from criticism. His bandit seems to have been lifted note-for-note from Eli Wallach in "The Magnificent Seven" and not with good results. You could engender more empathy for Claire Bloom's rape victim if her performance wasn't so overwrought. Laurence Harvey, per usual, is the substance of wood. The best work here is delivered by the supporting actors who witnessed the events of the trial. Believe it or not, William Shatner as a disillusioned preacher gives an effectively understated account. Howard Da Silva as a prospector who gives key testmony at the trial and the inimitable Edward G. Robinson as a sarcastic snake oil salesman are also terrific. An interesting film that could have been more.

The screenplay, actors, music, photography, the Old Southwest location, is absolutely superb! The screenplay expands the story and adds more detail to each persona. Newman, the bandido Carrasco, speaks English and Spanish which is common, and pulls the 'race card' at his trial. Edward G. Robinson, the 'Con Man', scoffs, mocks and laughs every time he hears a new version. In the final scenes, Claire Bloom's brilliant performance puts us in the mood of a live Broadway play by Tennessee Williams. Notice the expressions of The Prospector, Howard Da Silva, when the Con Man finds him out. William Shatner's part, The Preacher, is minimal. Laurence Harvey's character, The Husband, expresses loathsomeness, scorn and disdain for his wife verbally and on his face. The camerawork, ethereal ( notice the blur when Carrasco is sick and falls off his horse and the scene around the dead man), close ups, long shots, overhead, upward spiral, and the location in the Arizona desert and scenes by the waterfall are so picturesque. One can see James Wong Howe's camera influence from 'Rashomon'. The musical compositions and orchestrations of Alex North are wonderful ! There are only a few sections in the film where music is played, which is effective in maintaining the silence and solitude of the desert. Festive Mexican dance music, with harp, flutes, tambourine, drums, violins, starts when Carrasco takes a siesta under a giant cactus as the couple passes by. The music continues as Carrasco gallops after them through the giant cactus desert and is reminiscent of "The Cisco Kid".Read more ›
