Bill Miner—sometimes called the Gentleman Robber or the Grey Fox—was an American outlaw in the late 19th and early 20th centuries who became something of a folk hero due to how well he was said to behave while committing his crimes. Reflecting its benevolent protagonist, this 1982 revisionist western about Miner by Australian-born Canadian director Philip Borsos (working from a script by John Hunter) is considerably humane. The film follows Miner (played by Richard Farnsworth) after he finishes a 30-year prison sentence for holding up stagecoaches; inspired by Edwin S. Porter’s 1903 silent film The Great Train Robbery, he decides to start robbing trains. Miner settles in the small town of Kamloops, British Columbia, where he wins the hearts of the locals, including feminist photographer Kate Flynn (Jackie Burroughs)—eventually, however, the dreaded Pinkertons catch up with him. Between Miner’s refined nature, a refreshing love story, and picturesque cinematography by Frank Tidy, this goes down pretty easy.
