The Searchers

As a Civil War veteran spends years searching for a young niece captured by Indians, his motivation becomes increasingly questionable.


Helmed by Edmond O’Brien, this slick crime thriller stars Jeffrey Hunter as naïve Matt Jameson, whose Korean War pal Vince Biskay (David Janssen) talks Matt into helping commandeer nearly $4 million from a Central American dictator. After Vince is wounded in a gun battle as they’re making off with the loot, the duo holes up at Matt’s house — where his boozy, promiscuous wife (Stella Stevens) puts the moves on Vince.
