"Have you ever noticed how many fences there're getting to be? And the signs they got on them: no hunting, no hiking, no admission, no trespassing, private property, closed area, start moving, go away, get lost, drop dead! Do you know what I mean?"

This is my daughter as Kirk Douglas, and Askur playing his poor horse.  Lonely Are The Brave was one of the first westerns to be set in the contemporary (early ‘sixties) West; it’s a movie with a great tear-jerker of an ending where Kirk Douglas’s horse gets hit by a truck.  I know I cried.  I haven’t seen it for thirty years, I hope it’s still as good.
