Format: DVD
Little Big Man is framed as a retrospective narration by Jack Crabb, who at age 120-plus, is the oldest living survivor of Custer's last stand at Little Big Horn, and in the 1960's (?) is being interviewed by a newspaper writer.
As kids, Jack and sister Caroline are the only survivors of an Indian attack, and they are taken to an Indian village and meet "Old Lodge Skins", the chief. Caroline expects to be raped later (and is somewhat disappointed when she is not) and rides away at night. The Cheyenne ("human beings") adopt Jack. Due to his small stature, Jack is named "Little Big Man" after he saves Younger Bear from a Pawnee attack.
In a battle againt the cavalry, just before he is about to be killed, Jack ID's himself as a white man, and is put in the care of Reverend Pendrake, whose wife (Faye Dunaway) takes an interest in Jack. He is taught to to read and write, and takes up religion with Mrs. Pendrake. After he finds Mrs. Pendrake and a soda-shop man in bed, that ends his religion phase.
Jack takes up with Mr. Meriwether, a con-man, and ends up getting tarred and feathered by a group lead by his own sister. Jack moves in with Caroline and she teaches him to shoot ("Go snake-eyed"). Jack becomes a flashy gun-fighter known as the Soda Pop Kid after his drink of choice. He meets Wild Bill Hickok ("Might I ask who I are addressin'?") but gives up gunfighting after Hickok kills a man in a bar. Caroline disowns him, so Jack gets a partner, becomes a store owner, and marries Olga, a large Swedish woman. Jack's partner is a crook, and he goes bankrupt.
General Custer is passing by, takes pity on Jack and advises him to "go west" with his personal guarantee of safety - cut to Indians raiding a stage coach and riding off with Olga.

All the others on this page have done a wonderful job of reviewing this movie, so I will not continue. However I think it is a shame that it is not on any Top Ten lists of westerns. All the lists I have seen are heavy with Ford directed movies depicting the Indians as the bad, the yellow scarved cavalrymen as the good, and the obligatory love interest of some chick riding into indian country on the stage. I suppose it is understandable given the times these were made, etc., but most westerns are a notch below Little Big Man. Outlaw Josie Wales should be in the top ten also, but that rant is for another page.

I remember just how disgusted I was watching Costner court the permed up caucasian woman and all I could think was, I wish I were watching Little Big Man again.
No movie that I know has ever painted the American Indian culture as vividly, or as empathetically. And given that, the movie goes on to succeed on every level it exists, the dramatic, the romantic and the comic.
I can't tell you how this movie ranks in the pantheon of great film, but I can say with absolute certainty it is the most enjoyable film I have ever watched. I find the ending both moving and deeply funny and look forward to that scene every time.

Format: DVD
One of director Arthur Penn's finest films, Little Big Man combines satire with tragedy with a deft, sure hand. The screenplay by the talented Calder Willingham and direction are sharp as nails and actor Dustin Hoffman manages to pull off a coup playing Jack Crabb from teen years (it's actually Hoffman's voice you hear dubbed in as a young teen)to old age (with marvelous make up by Dick Smith). Is Crabb telling tall tales (ironic and appropriate given his small stature and his Indian name)or did much of what he speaks about occur? It doesn't really matter as the telling of the tale is so marvelous.
Penn and his collaborators use Jack as a social mirror reflecting the injustice, brutality and pettiness of the wild west. Staying true to the spirit of Thomas Berger's marvelous novel, the cast and crew manage to distill much of the essence of Berger while sacrificing some of the less important details. The loss is, surprisingly, not really felt for many of those who read the novel. The superb supporting cast includes Martin Balsam, Jeff Corey (in a funny, perceptive cameo as Wild Bill Hiccock), Faye Dunaway (as a religious hypocrite who lusts after her adopted son Jack), Chief Dan George (he has some of the funniest lines in the script)and the late Richard Mulligan playing a vain nearly psychopathic General Custer.
The digital transfer preserves the original aspect ratio of the film and the nearly flawless print shows very little digital compression problems. This disc is enhanced for 16X9 widescreen TVs. The 139 minute production is presented on a dual layer disc for maximum picture quality. I didn't detect any analog artifacts (or at the very least very few). The color is fairly true to the original release as far as I can tell. The sound presented in Dolby Digital 5.

I recently watched Little Big Man for the first time in 20 years. I was surprised how well it has held up. In fact I believe it to be a superior movie when compared to Dances With Wolves which perpetuates the myth of the Noble Savage, especially in the depictions of living conditions. The Plains Indians suffered a brutal and primitive existance survived by becoming one with their environment. I think Little Big Man depicts this while Dances With Wolves does not.
