Capital Celluloid - Day 42: Friday Feb 11, 2011

The Big Sky: BFI Southbank, 8.30pm NFT2

Another marvellous Western from Howard Hawks, ostensibly about Kirk Douglas and Dewey Martin on a pioneering trading expedition up the Missouri river but more about the relationship between the two men and their entanglement with an Indian woman they capture as hostage. Wonderful entertainment and one of Hawks's most underrated movies for sure.

Here is a clip.
