By the turn of the 20th century, Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, Billy the Kid and virtually all of the West’s legendary outlaws are either dead or in jail pending execution. Well, all, except train robber and escape artist extraordinaire, Harry Tracy. As the last survivor of the Wild Bunch, Tracy pulls off a series of profitable robberies before making his way west to Portland, Oregon, in search of Catherine Tuttle – a judge’s daughter who has captured his heart.
Director: William A. Graham. AKA Harry Tracy: The Last of the Wild Bunch
Stars: Bruce Dern, Helen Shaver, Michael C. Gwynne, Gordon Lightfoot, Daphne Goldrick.
Nice to see a good quality version of this underrated film. I had previously only seen the inferior quality (picture-wise) one on You Tube. A striking performance from Bruce Dern, with good support from Helen Shaver. The rest of the cast turn in decent performances too, in my opinion. I found myself rooting for the “desperado” here. The lawmen showed little emapathy and not much more humanity. A poignant ending. I enjoyed watching this film very much. I’m a big fan of Gordon Lightfoot’s music, so it was interesting to see him in an acting role instead.
