Additional Information

The final days of the infamous James gang are meticulously detailed in this riveting account of the group's most daring robbery. Led by the introspective Cole Younger (Cliff Robertson) and the nearly psychotic Jesse James (Robert Duvall), the much-glorified desperadoes set their sights on the biggest bank west of the Mississippi. The gritty action and dialogue, based on documented fact, chronicles the robbery from Younger's decision to storm the seemingly impregnable depository right up to the precision-planned assault. Directed in semi-documentary style by Philip Kaufman, this taut action-adventure shows the West as it truly was … and why it will never be forgotten.

"The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid" is one of the best crafted and excellently acted films you will ever see. It is such a shame that this truly great film is so little known. This, basically, is the original "telling" of the "Long Riders" without all the "polish" of hollywood...and that is just fine for this story, which, of course, actually DID happen. A little grittier than "The Long Riders", and that TOO is also in keeping...this, after all, is NOT a pretty story, so WHY doctor it up??? Robertson and Duvall turn in two knockout performances. Supporting cast is also FINE. Cinematography is simply fabulous. This one sticks in my mind, as does "Once Upon a Time in the West", "The Grey Fox", and "The Unforgiven"....check it out and see what I mean...you will not be sorry, it's top notch true story-telling, sadly "unknown".
Wanta see what a rat good old Jesse James was? This is a story that has some interesting turns from actual history, but the outcome is still the same ... Robert Duvall plays this part to perfection as the psycopathic killer the protaganist was ...sammy
Now that Warner Brothers has recently given us "Fort Apache" and "Ballad of Cable Hogue" on dvd, we have only about 8 "necessary" westerns that beg to be released in the dvd format. These are "The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid", "The Gunfighter", "There Was a Crooked Man", "The Gray Fox", "Jesse James", "The Return of Frank James", "The Sundowners", and "The Culpepper Cattle Company".

"The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid" is one of the best crafted and excellently acted films you will ever see. It is such a shame that this truly great film is so little known. Robertson and Duvall turn in two knockout performances. Cinematography is simply fabulous. If you have a chance to see this, even on tape, do so. You will be very glad that you did. This film, along with the other seven above desperately need to be digitized and put on dvd--both for our enjoyment and their preservation. Perhaps a letter-writing campaign to Amazon.com requesting these titles might get the attention of... Read more
