The Chase
by Arthur Penn

The moral foundation of a small Texas town is torn apart in this explosive drama about power and greed, starring Academy Award(r) winners Marlon Brando, Robert Redford, Jane Fonda and Angie Dickinson. Sheriff Calder (Brando) isn't the only person chasing Bubber Reeves (Redford) when he escaped from prison. Oil and cattle baron Val Rogers (E.G. Marshall) wants Bubber out of the way to cover up the love affair his son Jason is having with Bubber's wife (Fonda). The chase is on. When bigotry and booze propel the townsfolk into a vigilante mob, Calder's wife (Dickinson) tries to convince her husband that he doesn't have to bring Bubber in alive. But the sheriff is fighting for justice and he won't be stopped until the shattering climax. No one escapes untouched in acclaimed director Arthur Penn's action-packed drama scripted by Lillian Hellman from a Horton Foote novel.
