Despite a string of low-budget failures, Philip Kaufman was given the chance to direct this big-budget western, attempting to tell the true story behind Jesse James's and Cole Younger's robbery of the biggest bank across the Mississippi. Maybe too conscious of the historical burden upon him, Kaufman's own script never gels and the whole exercise, admirable as it is and enlivened by quirky decidedly unwestern like humour, fails to make much dramatic impact.
Robertson as Younger and Duvall as James don't make much of their material, and this remains an odd diversion on the director's CV.
