Film Friday: William Wyler's 'The Big County' starring Gregory Peck & Jean Simmons

By Daniel S Levine,

There aren't that many films with titles that so perfectly describe them. The Big Country has the perfect title. It is a BIG Western, and that's not an understatement. However, it is as balanced as any other epic by mater director William Wyler. The Big Country is action packed, but filled with all the emotional, romantic intensity one should expect from Wyler. The audience is enveloped in the wide open landscapes, but that never overwhelms the characters.
