The Shooting is a 1966 Old West drama starring Jack Nicholson as a sadistic sharpshooter. In the mid-1800s, bounty hunter Willett Gashade (Warren Oates) retires from his dangerous life of chasing criminals to become a gold miner. Gashade teams up with experienced miner Leland Drum (B.J. Merholz) and a na''ve young man, Coley Boyard (Will Hutchins). When Drum is murdered, Gashade and Boyard decide to chase down his killer. Along the way, they meet a mysterious young woman (Millie Perkins), who offers them a large sum of cash to escort her to a spot in the desert but will not explain why she needs to go there. Then, Billy Spear (Jack Nicholson), an ornery gunslinger, begins to follow them. Though he seems to know the young woman, neither will reveal their connection, but Spears joins their hunting party. As the group closes in on the killer, their real motivations become clear before a final shootout. Monte Hellman directs this bleak and psychological take on the Old West.moreless
