The Lusty Men (1952)-Robert Mitchum directed by Nick Ray

The Lusty Men (1952)- A modern western where brilliant director Nick Ray’s sensitive camera tells us the unspoken thoughts of both Robert Mitchum as rodeo star Jeff McCloud and Susan Haywood as ranch housewife Louise via their introspective facial expressions. Love the scene towards the beginning where Mitch as Jeff McCloud seeking meaning about his past returns to his decaying boyhood home presently owned by familiar face old timer Burt Mustin- memories are written all over Mitch’s face!
