Hombre develops the theme that socially and morally disparate types are often thrown into uneasy, explosive alliance due to emergencies.

An unhurried, measured look at interacting human natures, caught up only for story purposes in a given situation, the characters speak truisms which, sometimes, are overdone platitudes.

Adapted from Elmore Leonard’s novel, it tells the story of an Apache-raised white boy who becomes the natural leader of a group in its survival against a robber band headed by Richard Boone.

Paul Newman is excellent as the scorned (but only supposed) Apache. Fredric March, essaying an Indian agent who has embezzled food appropriations for his charges, also scores in a strong, unsympathetic – but eventually pathetic – role. Richard Boone is very powerful, yet admirably restrained as the heavy.
