1973 · Burbank, CA
Director Terrence Malick's transcendent and ferocious debut, loosely based on the 1958 murder spree of Charles Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate, starring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek in early outstanding performances.
Kit, a handsome but disaffected young garbage collector and Korean War veteran, succeeds in charming Holly, a shy teenage girl, despite the objections of her brutish father. The two run away together after Kit murders her father, initiating a killing streak that follows in their wake.
Set in South Dakota, shot on location in Colorado.
8 x 10 inches. Near Fine.
