An Apache attack forces a Union soldier to team up with an ex-Confederate officer against a common foe.
The past—and the future—close in on a reformed gunslinger. Like Alan Ladd's Shane, Gregory Peck's The Gunfighter and Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven, The Lonely Man belongs to that saddlebag full of Westerns about a gunslinger to coming to terms with his infamous past and uncertain future. Jack Palance stars as Jacob Wade, a notorious outlaw trying to ride the trail of respectability. But where Wade goes, his reputation follows. And so does trouble. Fearful citizens are quick to turn him out of their town. Vengeful killers have vowed to stalk him to his grave. And Wade's son (Anthony Perkins), embittered over his father's long absence, cannot quell the pain and hate in his heart. Neville Brand, Lee Van Cleef, Claude Akins and Elisha Cook co-star in this spare, ruggedly entertaining sagebrush saga.
Aging gunslinger Jacob Wade hopes to settle down with his estranged son, but his old enemies have other plans for him
