Hombre is the classic 1967 Western starring Paul Newman as John Russell, a white man raised by Apache Indians who now must try to assimilate back into the non-Indian culture. After selling away his inheritance and putting out some townsfolk, he finds himself riding out of town with the very same people. When the stagecoach is ambushed, the passengers must now depend on Russell to survive. The film was the sixth collaboration between Newman and director Martin Ritt (Hud) and was based on a novel by Elmore Leonard.
