Widely hailed as one of the top ten motion pictures of the 1970s, this Western follows an entrepreneurial drifter with a hidden past. John McCabe builds a makeshift brothel and casino in a small Pacific Northwest mining town during the turn of the century who finds an unlikely assistant in a world-weary, opium-smoking British madame. Featuring outstanding performances by Warren Beatty and Julie Christie, McCabe and Mrs. Miller is yet another outstanding revisionist genre film from acclaimed director Robert Altman.
