Rating: B -- Penn seems to have little feel for the Western genre, but despite that the amazing thing is that this mock epic Western came out as well as it did. Full Review

[T]he film unfolds as a rambling, picaresque folk tale…...Even the saddest and most squalid moments come laced with humour.

This outraged reconfiguration of an all-American genre may be set in the Wild West, but it's also very much a bulletin of its time. Full Review

Product Description:

LITTLE BIG MAN was significant when it was made because of its editing, which was still being explored in Hollywood at the time as a vehicle for innovative, simple storytelling.

Arthur Penn's film of Thomas Berger's bestselling novel demystifies the Old West with its funny, chaotic portrayal of one man's experiences in its closing days. Jack Crabb (Dustin Hoffman), a 121-year-old Indian living in a rest home, relates his incredible life experiences. According to Crabb's somewhat fanciful tales, he was raised by the Cheyenne from the age of 10 only to be seized by whites when he was 15. He then embarks on a string of failed attempts to find a place for himself in the world. These bring him into contact with (among many others) Wild Bill Hickok, the US Cavalry, a former preacher's wife-turned-prostitute, his own spunky frontierswoman sister, and General George Armstrong Custer during the Battle of Little Big Horn. The result is a funny, spiritual film with a humane view of the plight of Native Americans.
