I like how Penn arrives to a great meaningfil subject -with massacre and all- through this patetic comic pitiful man. Story goes round and round and that's the key.

Description: Jack Crabb (Dustin Hoffman) is the sole white survivor of Custer's Last Stand at Little Big Horn. As the film opens, this 121-year-old man is giving an interview to a student.

Adopted as a brave after his family is massacred by Pawnees, Jack is brought up in a Cheyenne tribe. His Indian grandfather, Old Lodge Skins (Chief Dan George), teaches him about the difference between the Cheyenne (who call themselves "Human Beings") and the whites: "This will be the first time I have ever faced the whites as a ...

" Director: Arthur Penn Starring: Dustin Hoffman, Chief Dan George, Faye Dunaway, Martin Balsam, Jeff Corey, Richard Mulligan, Cal Bellini, Thayer David, William Hickey and James Anderson When a curious oral historian turns up to hear the life story of 121-year-old Jack Crabb, he can scarcely believe his ears. Crabb tells of having been rescued and raised by the Cheyenne, of working as a snake-oil salesman, as a gunslinger and as a mule skinner under General Custer. As if those weren't astonish"

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1970's) (158 movies items)

" Notes: To be honest, I have already seen this movie but it was ages ago and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Still, back then, I really loved the damned thing. Indeed, back in those days, Dustin Hoffman just got his breakthrough a couple of years before with ‘The Graduate’ and the guy was already at the top of his game. In my opinion, it was one of the very few movies which managed to take a classic genre (in this case, the Western) and gave it a nice satirical twist. Serious"
