Everything in "The big sky" has the brand of greatness: story, direction,
acting, script, photography, locations. Yet there's something more. Along
the film, director Howard Hawks keeps touching profound strings of our
souls. Indeed, we grown-up viewers are, more or less consciously, brought
back to the dreams of our prime, which is always a source of sweet, though
melancholic, bliss. Every young boy has dreamed a totally free life like
that of the guys on the screen. Action and adventure, merged into a wild,
glorious, almost impossibly beautiful nature. Having fun with our mates,
and, when necessary, fighting against the bad ones. Contacting the cultures
of far-away, fascinating populations. And, as the main benefit, loving a
gorgeous Indian girl.
Follows an incomplete exposition of the other merits of "The big sky". The
film is brilliantly made and interpreted. The actors are all outstanding.
Arthur Hunnicutt dominates. Kirk Douglas' natural dynamic way is perfect for
his role. Dewey Martin is excellent, as well. Special mentions to Elizabeth
Threatt as Teal Eye and to Hank Worden as the funny but smart Poordevil. The
black and white photography is magnificent. Indeed, only black and white
seems capable to render the incredible bright of Threatt's eyes. And it
fully respects and gives depth to the beauty of nature.
As usual in Howard Hawks' works, the movie is based on swift-pace-action
amalgamated with the human interaction of the characters. Here we have a
world with no established laws, out of those of nature. People survive if
they recognize who is a friend and who is an enemy, independently on being
white or native. The mixture of languages, English, French, Native, and
related, often funny, translations, is a fine device to give realism to the
script. The love story develops at the rhythm of nature, similarly to the
endless journey of the keel-boat, and it's even touching at the ending. We
also see that irrational hate is not just criminal nonsense, it's even
It seems that "The big sky" was considerably cut by the studios. In fact,
some magnificent choral scenes appears to be too short. One instance for
all: the paramount scene of the Blackfeet hauling the keel-boat on the river
lasts just few seconds. To cut the film was certainly a very bad idea.
Fortunately, "The big sky" remains a masterpiece, worth of Hawks' immense
talent and genius.
Well, it's enough clear that I like this movie. Indeed, I strongly believe
that Howard Hawks was born to give us joy. "The big sky" is a major evidence
in favor of my opinion.
