Boxcar Bertha (1972)

Boxcar Bertha (1972), directed by Martin Scorsese.

A poor young woman falls in with gamblers, labor organizers and bandits. The movie has light and whimsical bits, but also brutal scenes, culminating in a rail-car crucifixion and bloody shotgun revenge.

It's a small, pretty inconsequential film, but often nicely photographed. The plot and editing seem rough by today's standards when everything is super-smooth and more formulaic.

It's worth seeing if:

Barbara Hershey and David Carradine perform their own nudity; neither has a butt to speak of. They were a couple at the time and I see they staged a reenactment of the love scenes for Playboy.

Inspired by a real character, they say.
