Product Description

Indian by birth, but secretly adopted by whites, Rachel Zachary (Audrey Hepburn) soon becomes the target of lawless racism and brutality when her true identity is revealed. The Indians want her back, the local whites want her dead, and her only hope for survival is a man (Burt Lancaster) who must face the most terrifying fight of his life to save the woman he loves! Legendary director John Huston (The Misfits) is "at the top of his form" (Time) with this "powerful, exciting" (The Film Daily) tale of forbidden love set against America's most rugged and ruthless frontier. Co-starring Lillian Gish, Audie Murphy, John Saxon and Charles Bickford. Featuring a script by Ben Maddow (The Asphalt Jungle), The Unforgiven is a "tough, Texas saga filled with pride, prejudice and passion" (Video Movie Guide)!

This is an excellent movie that explores prejudices, family ties, and our preconceived notions about ourselves. It is set in the Old West, but the issues it explores are still relevant today. Director John Huston has done a masterful job with this film.
Audrey Hepburn is elegant and beautiful in the role of a sister who may have a "questionable" birth. Audie Murphy is her somewhat simple-mindedly prejudiced brother, Burt Lancaster is her older brother, whom she quietly adores. (And we soon see, the feeling is mutual.) Lillian Gish is just fantastic as the matriarch of the family, and Joseph Wiseman is excellent, as always, as an enigmatic stranger. Also, look for John Saxon in a small role as a Native American ranch hand.
A must-see. Incredibly well done, with wonderful performances by Hepburn, Lancaster and Gish, especially.

Format: VHS Tape
"The Unforgiven" is a relatively forgotten western despite having a cast that included Burt Lancaster, Audrey Hepburn, Audie Murphy, and Lillian Gish and being directed by John Huston. One would think with that cast and director a classic could have been made. However, "The Unforgiven" is nothing special and some elements of it are just awful. It has probably one of the cheesiest soundtracks ever done for a western. Also, whoever was responsible for that tacked on romantic subplot involving two of the main characters should be locked up as a degenerate.
These two characters have spent their entire lives thinking of each other as brother and sister. Yet the day after they discover they're not really related they propose marriage and start giving each other passionate kisses. Am I the only one who thought that was little bit on the disgusting side? I know women were scarce back in the Old West, but the idea that someone can instantly turn what had been sibling love into romantic love is beyond weird. Some parts of this movie are quite well done, especially its actions scenes, but the annoying score and the gross-out romance really ruined the movie for me.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By An Injun on Jan. 17 2004
Format: DVD
Audrey Hepburn is a beautiful sleek-haired Injun girl raised by a white family. Only her mother knows her true origins, the rest believe her to be white. When the truth comes out, her Injun brethren seek to reclaim her, and the white community want to give her to them. Only her family stand by her.
The Injuns come, flying a peace flag. Audrey says she wants to go to them, 'my people'. So Burt Lancaster shoots one of them.As Audrey points out, there is now no option but war.
The Injuns attack. Their strategy is to ride round and round in a big circle waiting to get shot. Audrey, at first, refuses to shoot her own people, but ultimately she has no choice. She seems to be in some pain.
During an interlude in the battle, Burt, (her non-blood brother, kisses Audrey, long and hard on the lips. There were hints at a sexual attraction between Audrey and Burt Lancaster (her white brother) at the beginning of the film, but it seems that only after he knows the truth, does his desire rise into consciousness. Then, Audrey's blood brother enters the house, unarmed and walking towards her, so Audrey shoots him. The Injuns are defeated, all fifty of them, wiped out by two brothers, an old woman, and Audrey Hepburn, all because of Burt's lust for the dark-skinned beauty. On the other hand, the Injuns' tactics were somewhat foolish, so perhaps they are to blame for their own defeat.
A flock of birds fly across a clear sky as the family emerge from their house, at peace after their victory.
I've always had a problem with westerns because of the genocidal aspect to the genre, butit was only after the credits that I realised this was supposed to be an anti-racist film.
The three stars are because I enjoyed it. Great acting and dialogue, interesting camerawork. But Hollywood is a very strange place. As the Injuns used to say (before they were shot), 'White man speak with forked tongue'.

By dogooder44 on Feb. 13 2013
Format: DVD
i saw this movie when it first came out in the theatres. i thought it was interesting because i was a big Audrey Hepburn fan. i loved the music and bought the soundtrack. this was back in 1960 when i was a child. i didn't think it was that violent compared to the Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns i saw later. i didn't think Audrey Hepburn with her accent was very realistic but i was a big fan and it didn't bother me back then. probably today, i wouldn't like this movie as much as i'm not a fan of Hepburn's, however i would buy this movie just for old times sake as i love old Westerns and in 1960 this was one of the last 'old' westerns. i don't like Burt Lancaster at all, but i still think this movie isn't as bad as all that as i saw it on t.v. some time ago when i was a little older. i don't know why people are put off by violence and racism in movies as there's a lot of it in real-life, i'd be more offended by what i see in the news on t.v. this is a movie that's probably ahead of it's time, who was president back in 1960? wasn't there a problem with racism then? and what about today in 2013, there are still problems with violence and racism, so it's very much a topical subject for today's audience. i just wish Eastwood picked a different name for his movie as it's confusing this movie for his which was very very violent and there were women of ill-repute in that movie which The Unforgiven hasn't, but i'm not a prude so it doesn't bother me, but another viewer's comments about disgusting in this film is laughable. i see that all these other reviews were written about 10 years ago or longer.
