Storyline

By the year 1900, Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, John Wesley Hardin, and virtually all of the West's legendary outlaws are either dead or in jail pending execution-all of them, that is, 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. Instead, Tracy is betrayed, arrested, and imprisoned. But no jail can hold him for long. After making his escape, Tracy becomes the target of the largest manhunt in the history of North America. He seeks out Catherine who joins him in his flight, and their love deepens under the constant threat of capture. With hundreds of posses and national guardsmen on their heels, Tracy knows that time is running out-and when it does, there will only be two options: surrender or die...

Goofs

The headline on the newspaper Harry Tracy reads, announcing Merrill's betrayal, misspells the words "Pursue" and "Trail." It reads "150 Men Persue Bloody Tracy Trial." Surely they weren't talking about 150 newspapermen in a courtroom. See more »

I've watched and loved this movie for years
12 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I taped this movie from HBO around 1983-85, and I'm sure that I watched the VHS tape 20 times before putting it away. I'm finally copying it to a DVD and watching it for the first time in many years.

Bruce Dern never was a handsome guy, but he's a great character actor, and I loved him in this movie. Above all things, it shows that most people are not all good or all bad. In spite of his questionable career choice, Harry Tracy was a fair man.

There's nothing I don't like about the acting, cinematography, and the endearing tale of Harry Tracy and the woman he loved. I highly recommend it if it's still available.

I'll sign off as Harry Tracy would: "Make a wish."
