(1982, Phillip Borsos) After decades in prison, stagecoach robber Richard Farnsworth emerges in 1901 a free man without a place in 20th century society – until he sees The Great Train Robbery and is inspired to once again do what he does best.

A KINO LORBER RELEASE

Reviews

“One of the loveliest adventures... director Phillip Borsos is able to make this a human story and still keep it exciting as an action picture.”
– Roger Ebert

“A graceful, stunningly-photographed bio of Bill Miner, a notorious train robber in Canada and the US at the turn of the century.”
Variety

“Terrific. Richard Farnsworth is a delight... remarkably appealing with a face the camera adores.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times
