The Missouri Breaks is a 1976 American epic Western film starring Marlon Brando and Jack Nicholson. The film was directed by Arthur Penn, with supporting performances by Randy Quaid, Harry Dean Stanton, Frederic Forrest, John McLiam, and Kathleen Lloyd. The score was composed by John Williams. The title of the movie refers to a forlorn and very rugged area of north-central Montana, where over eons, the Missouri River has made countless deep cuts or "breaks" in the land.

Jack Nicholson's Most Recent Stories. Remembering Marlon Brando, by Jack Nicholson . I think Marlon probably had more fun shooting The Missouri Breaks than any movie he did. He liked all the guys in the movie. We were out in Montana. Our director, Arthur Penn, really had to nurse me back to health just to get me to continue on with the picture. So I mean it when I say that if you can’t appreciate Brando, I wouldn’t know how to talk to you. If there’s anything obvious in life, this is it.

in the Arthur Penn western The Missouri Breaks (1976), an uneven yet compellingly quirky film; and he directed and starred in another revisionist western, Goin’ South (1978). His next notable role was in director Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining (1980); an adaptation of the Stephen King novel, it is a film.

McLiam hires a top-gun bounty hunter (Marlon Brando). Nicholson sets out to kill Brando, but loses his chance. Brando resumes a murderous rampage which will soon wipe out all the outlaws-except Nicholson, who will precede his final battle to the death with Brando in a competition of mugging, switching accents (Brando) and mannerisms that would, in themselves, do in lesser men. This enormously entertaining movie was directed by Arthur Penn.

Comments to eBook The Missouri Breaks
A friend met Brando many years ago, spent a few weeks with him on his Tahiti island, bought after the Mutiny on the Bounty, where he married a local Tahiti girl and had his kids. Sitting on the beach, just the two of them, both actors with quick wits, they dueled in characters made and dropped as fast as they could speak, in flawless accent, a drunken Irishman a German Gestapo Agent, Bombastic Politician, never stopping or slowing down for hours.., . Brando was so creative and utterly bored with Hollywood, he did movies for money and the occasional career defining role like the Godfather (a low budget movie directed by an unknown who Brando respected enough to follow his direction while adding bits like the cat in the opening scene). What you see in this movie was how Brando lived his life, his ever ranging mind, at play though serious in a way, at least what he felt was serious while acting. Watch it again, then understand that's who you'd see, if he liked you, as he did my friend and fellow actor,. Brando was a man willing to do anything, including insisting they keep in the sound of the horse pissing as well as his unscripted reaction as well as that silly bit with the carrot and the horse's kiss. You either like Brando, how he worked and played or you don't, but there it is, enjoy, for he's gone now.
I've had this movie for 20 years and just upgraded to DVD. One of the best. Top 10 western, and maybe top 5. I'll start with my reasons now:
1. Cast - wow, is this movie cast. Just unbelievably so. Harry Dean Stanton is amazing in this. You can't believe he's acting. Marlon Brando gets out of his skin nutty in this. And that man could ride a horse! The rest of 'em.. all very good.
2. Setting - wow, northern plains, very pretty and unique. Not your cliche setting for an 'old west' movie
3. Story - the main thread of this story (horse thieving) supports the abundance of other stories in this very well.
4. Violence - its' believable, not contrived or anything (well there is one scene that involves a fire and it's a bit suspect). The gunplay is not Hollywood-ized.
5. They pack a lot of stories in this movie and manage to make all of them work. Love stories rarely work in these (see the Spaghetti Westerns - they don't have 'em). But we get an interesting morsel in this one.
This is a forgotten 70s gem, a Western genre masterpiece deconstructed through the lens of a one of the better directors of his generation, Arthur Penn (Bonnie And Clyde).

Highly anticipated but under-appreciated upon its release, it was criticized for Marlon Brando's "out of control performance". Yet, this post-Godfather Marlon Brando is at his most crazed and ingenius, improvising his way through the role of a hired gun for a greedy land baron to great effect. Rather than out of control, he expands the character of a ruthless and skilled killer into something both poetic and deranged beyond anything seen in a Western before this time. He reinvents the activities of "regulator" as a creative art form for maniacs. Disguising himself as a demanding lavender smelling Irish plainsman, a wayward hillbilly preacher, and a bloodthirsty mace wielding transvestite with a penchant for granny garb, he toys and teases the not-so-bright band of horse thieves headed by a grubby Jack Nicholson as a cat would pat his mice senseless before devouring them.

Great script by Western writer Thomas McGuane, this film should be heralded as one of the quirkier but most interesting depictions of the dying West. McGuane's brilliant dialogue coexists nicely in the same world with Brando's improvisations.

If you are a fan of Great American Westerns, add this to your collection but expect unusual pacing, dialogue, characterizations, and an acting genius having a bit of fun.

This edition is a very bad and muddy transfer, perhaps there is a more current restoration. If there is, don't buy this edition, find this film in a clearer version and enjoy.
Great scenery & livestock, Well acted (I don't care for Brando or Jack as people though for many reasons but if you read the trivia the fact that they allowed what happened to the horses during the filming is just one more reason not to like them much.) and a pretty good story line.
fine watching two excellent actors work their magic together. worth seeing again. cast includes the great harry dean Stanton who brings his unflinching character work to life. director Arthur penn brings his western flair and almost handles brando. a good watch, not as good as little big man, but a good watch.
I first saw The Missouri Breaks soon after its release in 1976.I liked the movie so much,I went back and watched it again.Penn assembleed one of the best Western casts everThe stars,the not-so stars,the bad guys and good guys and the girl filled the screen with a natural fit that only great character actors can do.The rustlers handled guns casually and realistically.The towns looked Shane'ish(stark--dirty--real)--Penn's Montana is prairie,isolated,lawless,covered to the horizon with tall grasses and windswept flowers,almost colorless ,washed out,without fragrence,more unrelenting than beautiful.Forget postcard vistas of mountains with snowcaps,this was the Montana that settlers found and came to hate then love.

Jack N. is very good,calm,businesslike,playing a regular role,that paid big bucks.K. Lloyd,the girl,isgood and very forgetful.Quaid,Stanton and the rest are great as the gang.The story itself has been told and filmed many times,and,there is Brando,who steals the movie with a strange brilliant performance as a cold blooded assassin.In fact,Brando's scenes dominate the film and preverts the plot as we see regular good-bad guys being stalked by a bad-bad guy,strangely polite,even polished,and yet as he rides off at the end of the film we know behind the good manners and eloquent mannerisms lies the beast.Marlon B. was the greatest actor ever,I know so because he takes an implausible character and makes a little western into a real western classic.
