When James McKay (Gregory Peck), a former sea captain from the East, arrives in the West to meet his soon-to-be wife’s family, he finds himself an unwilling participant in a family war over water rights.
Two wealthy cattle ranchers, Major Henry Terrill (Charles Bickford) and Rufus Hannassey (Burl Ives) are feuding over the water rights on land owned by Julie Maragon (Jean Simmons). Maragon doesn’t want to sell the land to either man, and thus pick sides, so she keeps ownership of the property hoping that the fight between the two families will eventually settle itself.
James McKay doesn’t want to pick sides either, which disturbs his soon-to-be father-in-law, Major Henry Terrill. McKay doesn’t believe that violence is the way to settle the feud which makes the other men on the ranch and his fiancée Patricia Terrill (Carroll Baker) question his manhood.
As his fiancée begins to question his love for her because he isn’t willing to fight like the other men, McKay finds himself in an increasingly difficult situation.
Is James McKay really a coward? Can the two families somehow figure out a way to live peaceably in “The Big Country”?
Jealousy, hatred, rivalry makes “The Big Country” an action-packed western starring Gregory Peck, Burl Ives and Charlton Heston.
Burl Ives won a Best Actor Academy Award for his role as the feisty and stubborn ranch patriarch Rufus Hannassey.
