The Big Country is a classic 1958 dramatic western from United Artists, directed by legendary filmmaker William Wyler (Ben-Hur, Roman Holiday, The Best Years of Our Lives, Funny Girl). Peace-loving easterner James "Jim" McKay (Gregory Peck, To Kill A Mockingbird, Moby Dick, Cape Fear, The Omen, The Guns of Navarone, Roman Holiday) arrives in the western town of San Rafael, to marry adoring blonde Patricia "Pat" Terrill (Carroll Baker, Giant, How The West Was Won, Kindergarten Cop, The Game). Then, McKay becomes involved in the feud between the families led by her father Henry Terrill (Charles Bickford, Days of Wine and Roses, A Star is Born) and rival Rufus Hannassey (Burl Ives, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, East of Eden, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof). McKay also meets sexual tension with soft-formed school-teacher Julie Maragon (Jean Simmons, Spartacus) and sex-seethed, hard-bodied Steve Leech (Charlton Heston, Planet of the Apes, Touch of Evil, The Ten Commandments).
