Cold-blooded killer and legendary outlaw Jesse James (Robert Duvall) joins with notorious Cole Younger (Cliff Robertson) for one final heist. Their target? Only the biggest bank west of the Mississippi River. With their respective gangs and armed with a seemingly perfect plan, the robbers face the townsfolk of Northfield, Minn. -- and possibly their last stand -- in a bloody gun battle. Philip Kaufman directs the gritty cinema verité-style film.
