One Eyed Jacks is the 1961 western drama directed by and starring Marlon Brando along with co-stars Karl Malden, Slim Pickens, Katy Jurado and Ben Johnson. After pulling a bank heist in Mexico, the outlaw Rio (Brando) and his partner, Dad Longworth (Malden), make a run for it, but Dad has bigger plans than freedom. He betrays Rio and absconds with the loot, and Rio ends up in prison. Years pass before Rio finally breaks free to enact his long-plotted revenge. Tracking Dad to California, Rio learns he’s become a sheriff — which is no deterrent — but when Rio falls for Dad’s stepdaughter, he has second thoughts. Interestingly, director Brando walked off this – his only cinematic directorial effort – after shooting over 7 hours of film which was later shortened to just 141 minutes by Paramount Pictures for its release.
