A great movie that works as a re-imagining of "Stagecoach" but with a social conscience. It's made better by the fact that the characters are not completely black or white stock types. Except for the villain (played by Richard Boone) who is a bit more crude and vicious than what is typical for the genre. Paul Newman is excellent as the coolheaded protagonist and aided by a good cast.

Paul Newman plays a horse trader raised by the Apache who finds himself the protector of a group of travelers when they are ambushed by outlaws. Obviously another variation on the Stagecoach theme, Hombre instead casts the "Indian" as the anti-hero and the white men as the villains. This switch-around forms the basis of the story as the main topic is that of racism; the steely-eyed Newman is initially shunned and vilified because of his native American heritage but finds himself emotionally blackmailed into becoming their saviour as soon as they need his help. Newman is extremely charismatic as the enigmatic frontiersman, the irony being that the actions the whites see as "savage" are in fact born of the cold logic of a lifetime struggling for survival.
