Little Big Man

Director: Arthur Penn

Length: USA 1970 (139 mins)

Adapted from the novel by Thomas Berger, Little Big Man opens with the spoken reminiscences of 121-year old Jack Crabbe (Dustin Hoffman). In flashbacks we see how, as a young and wide-eyed frontiersman Crabbe is adopted by an Indian tribe led by philosophy spouting Chief Dan George. The film’s highlight is the Little Big Horn massacre with meglomaniac General Custer self-destructing as Crabbe looks on.
