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 headlines on the newspaper Harry Tracy reads announcing Merril's betrayal misspells the word "Trail". It reads "150 Men Persue Bloody Tracy Trial" Surely they weren't talking about 150 newspapermen in a courtroom. It should have read "Bloody Tracy Trail". See more »

Based on life of legendary bandit whose escapes made him a famous outlaw
11 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

The film begins in Aspen Colorado, 1899, Harry Tracy(Bruce Dern) is detained but the judge's daughter (Helen Shaver) helps the known gunslinger. Then he escapes and unites forces to David Merrill(Michael G. Wynne) , being relentlessly pursued by Marshal Nathan (Gordon Lightfoot). Later on , the legendary Harry Tracy is caught in Aspen escape attempt .

This is glamorous and whimsical story about an outlaw in the closing days of the Old West though a little bit boring. Packs colorful scenarios, slow-moving pace and slick edition. Wonderful cinematography by Allen Daviau filmed in British Columbia, though is necessary an urgent remastering .Atmospheric score with folk music and a song sung by Gordon Lightfoot. The producer Ronald Cohen wishes to acknowledge the following for their co-operation in the making of the film: British Columbia vial, Ministry of Tourism, and Heritage Park, Calgary Alberta. The film is co-financed with the participation of the Canadian Film Development corporation and Famous Players. The motion picture is professionally realized by William A Graham who displays enough off-beat touches to keep things interesting.

Adding more details over the largely described on the movie, deeds happened of the following way : Harry Tracy (Bruce Dern) whose real name was Harry Severns (1875-1902) , he is said to have run with Butch Cassidy and by the time he'd reached adulthood he was actively taking part on act of robbery and theft.His legendary escapes made him both a wanted gunfighter and exalted folk hero. On March 1, 1898 Tracy and 3 accomplices engaged in a gunfight at Brown's Park Colorado in which a posse-man was murdered. Then Harry join forces with another bandit named David Merrill (Michael G. Wynne). Tracy and accomplice were captured but escaped in June 1898 from the Aspen Colorado jail. In late 1901, Tracy was captured, convicted and incarcerated at the Oregon State Penitentiary. On July 3, 1902 he set up an ambush near Bothell, Washington, where he killed a deputy and a detective during a shootout. Tracy fled and took several hostages in a residence and engaged other law enforcement in a shoot'em up. On august 6, 1602 in Creston, Washington Tracy was cornered and shot in the leg during an ambush by a posse from Lincoln County, resulting his leg being badly injured. Sheriff Gardner ( in the film Marshal Nathan played by Gordon Lightfoot) arrived and had the field encircled that Tracy had crawled into. Harry committed suicide to avoid capture.
