The Greatest Cowboy Movie that Almost Never Was

Sex on the beach? Babies out of wedlock? The Sheriff is the bad guy? The bank robber is the good guy? The Deputy Sheriff is a slimy scoundrel? It couldn’t happen after the Hays Office began censoring movies in 1934, but now, in 1961, the code is slowly fading away. More and more exceptions to the rules are being filmed. Now, in 1961, a film with a love story ending that rivals Casablanca is released, after years of failed attempts to bring it to the big screen. This film was selected in 2018 to be preserved in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, but it was almost never made.

Producer Frank P. Rosenberg hired Marlon Brando in 1958 to star in a new style cowboy western, and then hired Rod Serling, famous for his “Twilight Zone” television series, to write the screenplay. Rosenberg didn’t like the way it turned out, so he fired Rod Serling and hired Sam Peckinpah to write a screenplay. Marlon Brando didn’t like either script, and had Peckinpah fired. Thirty-one-year-old Brando then purchased the rights to the book and the movie and hired Calder Willingham to write the script. Willingham had just written a blockbuster Kirk Douglas film, and would later write the 1967 classic, “The Graduate.”

Brando worked with screenwriter Willingham and director Stanley Kubrick, but the trio argued vigorously over the character development. Both Stanley Kubrick and Calder Willingham were fired, and Marlon Brando searched again for someone who could write the story that Brando was envisioning.

Marlon Brando next hired a little-known screenwriter named Guy Trosper, who had written the James Stewart classic “The Pride of St. Louis.” Brando liked what Trosper was writing, but still without a director, Marlon Brando decided to direct the film himself. This would be his first and only time directing any motion picture, but he got exactly what he wanted.

Marlon Brando created a new kind of cowboy western adventure, with characters that had never been seen before. This isn’t Roy Rogers and it isn’t Hopalong Cassidy. This is an all-new style of cowboy story that would never have been allowed during the past three decades of Hays office censoring. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
