After the success of `Easy Rider`, its star and co-creator Peter Fonda was given the green light to shoot the movie of his choice. The result was THE HIRED HAND, an elegiac western that stands firmly as a classic of modern American cinema.

Chasing their dream of a better life, Harry (Fonda) and his good friends Arch (Warren Oates) have drifted across the plains of America together. However, Harry has grown tired of his transient existence and decided to return to the wife and the child that he left years before.

At first, refusing to accept him back, his wife orders him to sleep in the barn and work the farm, strictly as a hired hand. Soon their romance rekindles, and they rediscover the happiness they had lost. But as bad news of Archie reaches Harry, he is forced to make the most costly choice of his life.

Presented here in its restored version, and supplemented with a host of essential additional material, this is the definitive edition of the most extraordinary western ever made.
