The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid (1972)

Directed by Philip Kaufman
Starred Cliff Robertson, Robert Duvall, Luke Askew, R.G. Armstrong, John Pearce, Matt Clark...
1972, United States, English with some Swedish dialogues

A nice title for a movie. Especially sounds exciting for heist movie fans. But the movie itself...

The gangs of Jesse James and Cole Younger join forces for a bank robbery in Northfield, Minnesota. If you take it as a western or kind of biography, then you might enjoy it more. Other than else, don't expect too much.

The discussion over the movie concentrates mainly on the question 'if the robbers are hero or not'. The film is counted as one of the movies in evolution of 'Westerns' for some.

Nominated for Best Drama Written Directly for the Screen at Writer's Guild of America.
