  • These Thousand Hills is a 1959 Western film starring Patricia Owens, Alfred Hayes and Richard Egan, and based on the novel of the same name by A. B. Guthrie Jr.. It was directed by Richard Fleischer. The movie stars Don Murray as Lat Evans, a sheltered rancher brought up under the stern gaze of his Bible-thumping father. Lat heads off into the world intent upon making his fortune, and befriends Tom on the cattle-herding trail. Eventually his friendship with Tom is tested in the fire of his craving for wealth and respectability, and he spurns the devoted love of Callie, a dancehall girl from whom he borrows money to buy a ranch, in favor of a conservative society woman, Joyce. Ultimately, Lat is faced with a choice between his ambitions and his loyalty to his old friends.
