Marlon Brando made his directorial debut in 1961 with One-Eyed Jacks, a brooding Western that he originally enlisted Stanley Kubrick to direct, but due to creative differences, Brando took over as director. After robbing a bank in Mexico, Rio (Brando) and Dad Longworth (Karl Malden) go on the run with Longworth betraying his partner and leaving him behind to be arrested by the Rurales. Years later, Rio escapes from prison and learns that Longworth is the sheriff of Monterey, California. Rio sets out with revenge on his mind but falls in love with Louisa (Pina Pellicer), Longworth’s stepdaughter, and begins to have second thoughts. One-Eyed Jacks represents Marlon Brando at the peak of his creative powers―both in front of and behind the camera.
