If you've ever felt that American-Westerns always took themselves a bit too seriously, then 'Little Big Man will help change that perspective. Dustin Hoffman plays the 121-year-old Jack Crabb, who recounts his fanciful life story to a gullible historian.

The stories being told through the recollection of one man and the way they are told make this one movie that everyone should see at least once.

These include yet another hilarious and charming performance from Chief Dan George as his adopted grandfather, a smouldering Faye Dunaway as the western equivalent of Mrs. Robinson and Richard Mulligan who plays Custer as a self-obsessed, pompous boob.
