Walter Hill
Released:
1980
Rating:
R

The Long Riders is the acclaimed 1980 historical action Western from tough guy movie specialist Walter Hill (The Warriors, 48 Hours, Red Heat), featuring an appropriate soundtrack by Ry Cooder and an all star cast of veteran character actors. After the Civil War, ex-Confederates and outlaw brothers Jesse (Stacy Keach, Road Games) and Frank James (James Keach, who co-produced), Cole (David Carradine, Kill Bill), Jim, (Keith Carradine, The Tie That Binds) and Bob Younger (Robert Carradine, Revenge of the Nerds), and Clell Miller (Randy Quaid, with Dennis as his brother who's gone straight) rob trains, banks and stagecoaches in Missouri and Kansas. Pursued doggedly by a posse of Pinkertons and local law enforcement, the gang temporarily scatters, meeting up again for one last big heist in Northfield, Minnesota, which goes horribly wrong when the local population takes umbrage at the robbery. The gang then dissolves, and when Jesse tries to organize a new outfit. . . the rest, as they say, is history.
