Always a Walter Brennan, never a John Wayne: such has been the life of perennial sidekick Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman, giving a subtle and deft career-best performance), happily living a life in the shadow of his legendary gunslinger cohort, Eddie Johnson (Peter Fonda), until a pair of rustlers leave Eddie lying dead and Lefty seeking revenge. A classic Western story filmed classically (gorgeous vistas shot on 35mm!), The Ballad of Lefty Brown is a delightful throwback, the no-frills story of a supporting player whom circumstance thrusts into a starring role.
