The Lonely Man (1957)

Henry Levin directs Jack Palance, Anthony Perkins and Elisha Cook, Jr in this sensitive Western about an outlaw trying to give his estranged son a better life.

An accomplished enough little drama with spikes of gunplay and horseplay. Of interest mainly to see a fresh faced Perkins in an early lead role, though it doesn’t really stretch him or mine his tightly coiled acting style all that well.
