Much better than many films on the 100 Westerns list.

Gorgeously shot, with a universally solid cast (Burl Ives' Oscar-winning performance is a standout), but what resonated most deeply with me was the character of Jim McKay; I wanted to cheer after so many of his lines, as they swiftly dismantled my least favorite Western genre tropes pertaining to "manliness," "cowardice," "pride" and "honor." The extended fist fight between Peck and Heston is the perfect example, after which McKay asks, "What did we prove?"

The trifecta of music, the performance of Burl Ives and the stunning cinematography will make me remember this movie for a long time. Rarely does a film grab a hold of you like this. They don't make them like this anymore.

Well I do declare if that Gregory Peck ain't trying to-here with the Hannassey's in The Big Country and the Ewells in To Kill A Mockingbird-clean up all the white trash in Hollywood movies!

And sticking to the theme of To Kill A Mockingbird, I've seen many Gregory Peck performances and I must say
that his portrayal of [i]James McKay
is probably the closest character I've seen to Atticus Finch in regards to Eastern well-educated, modest, polite, courageous without ego persona...you could almost say that this was Giant meets To Kill A Mockingbird in some ways...or as I like to call it: 'To Kill A Giant Mockingbird'

Note: Do you think during the epic sprawl on the veranda between Charlton Heston and Gregory Peck, Charlton leaned in once and said: 'Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty McKay'

Beautiful to look at, but very long-winded.
