5.0 out of 5 stars An overlooked classic
This is a terrific film, but often overlooked in favour of The Long Riders, covering pretty much the same character relationships. Cliff Robertson and Robert Duvall are superb in the lead roles, as Cole Younger and Jesse James respectively. Younger is portrayed as a thoughtful, intelligent, even likeable but rascally outlaw, whilst Duvall's Jesse James is suitable creepy...

3.0 out of 5 stars COLLARED.
this ain't a bad film but i found it a little slow for my likeing , the cast is good , a very convincing bunch of baddies indeed but because its based on the true story of their last bank raid it lacks a bit of action on route to the finale . still it was quite interesting to see what happened to these outlaws and if anything the law was even more reckless in those wild...

This is a terrific film, but often overlooked in favour of The Long Riders, covering pretty much the same character relationships. Cliff Robertson and Robert Duvall are superb in the lead roles, as Cole Younger and Jesse James respectively. Younger is portrayed as a thoughtful, intelligent, even likeable but rascally outlaw, whilst Duvall's Jesse James is suitable creepy and devious. This film really explodes a few myths, and the broody photography and characteristaion, right through the entire supporting cast, makes for a wonderful ensemble piece of cinema. I believe it was made for TV but is surprisingly (though not gratuitously) violent and explicit - people actually suffer when shot, rather than falling over in a dignified manner and gentlemanly manner! This really is a good film, whether you like Westerns or not!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Jesse James movie, 20 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid (Great Western Collection) [DVD] (DVD)
A movie more recent than the other westerns issued by 101 films. Again in colour, and another take on Jesse James and his fellow outlaws and relations. If you enjoy westerns with a grain of truth you will enjoy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good western, 25 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This 1972 western charts the later days of the Cole Younger/Jesse James gang. After briefly breaking apart the gangs unite for what they think will be one last big bank heist.
I enjoyed this western and thought it well directed and acted. Cliff Robertson and Robert Duvall made great leads and the supporting cast was impressive too. You will recognise many familiar faces from Sam Peckinpah westerns. It had some quite surreal imagery at times that I liked and good action too. The action scenes don't come too regularly but when they do come are gritty, exciting and violent. I don't think this has had as much exposure as it deserves over the years so its a lesser known western. If you like westerns you won't be disappointed.
