The Missouri Breaks - Movie Poster


Tom Logan is a horse thief. Rancher David Braxton has horses, and a daughter, worth stealing. But Braxton has just hired Lee Clayton, an infamous "regulator", to hunt down the horse thieves; one at a time.


  • Marlon Brando - Lee Clayton
  • Jack Nicholson - Tom Logan
  • Randy Quaid - Little Tod
  • Kathleen Lloyd - Jane Braxton


  • Arthur Penn


This should be the Brando and Nicholson show but Nicholson has not got much to work with due to his run of the mill character. Brando on the other hand seems to have free reign and boy does he take advantage. The stories a predictable one but it’s worth a watch for Brando’s eccentric performance when he was at the peak of his powers.
