In which film does Paul Newman play the character John Russell?
Hombre is a 1967 revisionist western film directed by Martin Ritt, based on the novel of the same name by Elmore Leonard and starring Paul Newman, Fredric March, Richard Boone, Martin Balsam, and Diane Cilento.
Newman's amount of dialogue in the film is minimal and much of the role is conveyed through mannerism and action. This was the sixth and final time Ritt directed Newman; they had previously worked together on The Long Hot Summer, Paris Blues, Hemingway's Adventures of a Young Man, Hud and The Outrage.
In late 19th-century Arizona, an Apache-raised white man, John Russell (Paul Newman), faces prejudice in the white world after he returns for his inheritance (a gold watch and a boarding house) upon his father's death.
